    I manage a ton of websites for clients. I’m receiving email about fail login attempts but it doesn’t specify what website. I have no way of identifying which site it’s coming from. Am I missing a detail?

    Email Text:

    Hello,
    
    16 failed login attempts (4 lockout(s)) from IP 122.55.226.1
    Last user attempted: icgi
    IP was blocked for 24 hours

  • I have a similar issue because my email is on several of my clients websites as the admin. I found that if you hover over the unsubscribe link, you’ll see the site in question. Maybe the creators can add that feature?

    Hi, good catch. We’ll address this in the next update. Meanwhile, you can see the domain in the unsubscribe link.

    I started getting these notifications yesterday. I’m wondering if this is legit.
    Mine reads “Hello,

    12 failed login attempts (3 lockout(s)) from IP 188.228.143.121
    Last user attempted: admin
    IP was blocked for 20 minutes

    Seems that the hacker is using “admin” as the password over and over.

    Update… I just looked at all 25 of my plugins and I don’t even have Limit Login Attempts Reloaded Plugin.

    Hi gtrguy,

    When you click the Unsubscribe link, does it get you to one of your sites? It should open a settings page of the plugin. Please let us know.

    Hi,

    We have uploaded a new version of the plugin with this issue fixed.

    Please try it out.

    I don’t understand. Isn’t the plugin working? I’m getting notified that there has been login attempts and the plugin is locking out the individual or bot that keeps using “admin” as the password to get in.

    I found the settings for the plugin but don’t see it listed in my plugins.

    Hi gtrguy,

    Most likely you’re on some managed hosting plan with the plugin installed as a MU plugin: https://wordpress.org/support/article/must-use-plugins/ This is why you don’t see it in the list of installed plugins, but it’s still there. A lot of hosting providers install the plugin this way as part of their setup process.

    Hi WPChef, I keep getting these login attempts. Is this some sort of bot that is trying to hack into my website? Am I understanding this correctly that it keeps using the word “admin” as the password to login? Here’s an example
    12 failed login attempts (3 lockout(s)) from IP 106.73.71.128
    Last user attempted: admin
    IP was blocked for 20 minutes
