My site was attacked from three months day and night. I installed Brute Protect and within minutes, no further attack.
This plugin is now part of Jetpack, but it will be operational until 31 December 2015.
Thanks and Good job.
Simply the best!!!
works great and gets better the more it is used by others.
Before WP 4.2 BruteProtect would not only protect but would actually stop the attack on my site just like the details advertised. One of my other security plugins also stops the attack and logs it, would show the attack on my site stopping as in no more log entries. But after WordPress 4.2 BruteProtect has apparently stopped diverting the bruteforce attack to the Automattic server farm because my security log just keeps growing with the attackers records. So far nothing productive has occurred from my support ticket on this issue.
This was a great plugin and nice to see it as part of the Jetpack plugin now.
Nice work Automattic in picking this up.
Nice idea. Message in Red says BruteProtect will conflict with Yoast SEO XML Sitemap.
This is a must use plugin. I install it on every site that goes live under my watch. Well done all involved. Heres hoping you all die rich and happy!
This WP plugin is a great idea - crowd-sourced protection against BruteForce attacks. Of course, the comprehensiveness of the database of attackers depends on everyone installing the plugin - but that's how crowd-sourcing works. So come on guys - do your bit and install it :-)
Every time I install wordpress I run a certain series of actions. On of the first, ever since I've found out about bruteprotect is adding BP as a plugin. On every website I install for my customers I've installed it, as well as on my own websites.
This plugin should be included as a standard plugin for WordPress! By far the most usefull plugin ever.
Thank you for this plugin.
After reading this :
Plt maintain the availability of this plugin for the people who do not want any Jetpack or for those or the site does not work well with Jetpack. Or integrate it directly on WP, I think it would be the best solution for all.
