Limit rate of login attempts, including by way of cookies, for each IP. Fully customizable.
This plugin has blocked a couple of IP pounding my site. If necessary, may resort to an .htaccess deny listing. But for now this plugin is my 50-foot fence.
Just simple and work.
This plugin has made my life a lot easier. Good Job!
I got this plugin from my Godaddy WordPress install, ever since I start installing it on my other WordPress websites as well. It just failed 30 different brute force login attempts. I am totally amazed.
I used to love this plugin and installed it on all my websites... but I discovered that is was making my server crash and give a Resource limit reached error on all websites. I don't understand why but I deactivated it and all is fine but as soon as I activate it on my most popular websites, the server soon gives the error. Looks like it loads lots of Entry Processes.... so if you have that error, try disabling that plugin.
Even if it has not been updated for 2 years, it is still working fine and usefull for securing backend access.
My sight was getting attacked in the severest way around 2 weeks ago from locations literally all of the world. If it were not for this plugin I would not have known about it and they would probably not have stopped if it weren't also for the lockouts.
I also ended up IP Blocking whole ranges of IP addresses through the hosting control panel.
It really is a shame that this has stopped being supported, even if it was only to bring it up to current version format. I hope it is before it breaks or someone else brings out another program like it. There appears to be buggerall at the moment.
Simple and it works :-)
Easy to use and works. Recommended to me by someone highly knowledgeable in the WordPress community.
