My site was going through a brute force attack for over 24 hours.
I had done all the steps to protect my site and at this stage it had not been compremised. The hackers were using proxy IP addresses so I couldn't easily established a fixed IP address to block. This type of hack is run by a program or script and is expecting a response from my server of incorrect username or password so it can continue.
By simply installing Captcha, that just simply worked straight from install, the brute force attack stopped. Presumably because the server response was not what the script was expecting.
Thanks and great plug-in!!
Authentic one-click installation, no settings needed.
Adding this plugin stopped 99% of brute force attack on two different WP installations. Much less job (and notifications) for security plugins.
Autentica installazione in un click, nessun bisogno di settaggi.
Aggiungere questo plugin ha fermato il 99% dei tentativi di intrusione su due diverse installazioni di WP. Molto meno lavoro (e notifiche) per i plugin dedicati alla sicurezza.
This plugin used to be very good but suddenly it is not working on my 5 client websites. No point using it now of course as it prevents me logging into all WP (admin) sites that I have created. Will need to disable/delete via FTP.
Support from developer/s is non-existent!
Muito bom parabês para o ator que crio ele....
Funciona perfeitamente. Obrigado!
Very easy too implement, nice to see.
No conflicts with other captcha
I don't understand why people gave it a low rating. I'm giving it 4 for only one reason, it doesn't look like the author is addressing any issues in the support forum. Other than that, it works just fine.
This plugin does exactly what it says and has been effectively thwarting the ongoing brute force wp-login attacks.
This plugin can not be used by developers who run their sites in debug mode:
define('WP_DEBUG', true); in wp-config.php
The developers do not respond to support questions.
I'm just trying this plugin for the first time as something different to the "1+1" captchas I've been using. However, I tried 6 times entering the exact captcha being shown in the image and it was rejected each time. In addition, the link was showing a link of "i.getsavinjs.info". I had to FTP in to remove this plugin in order to log into my wordpress site.
