The Russians attacked my new website starting late last night and I discovered it this morning. My website email inbox was full of alerts where someone from every city (it seems) in Russia tried to log into my WordPress admin account.
Wordfence stopped over 285 attempts at last count by 7:30 this morning. They tried the user name admin, followed by administrator, and then my website address over and over trying to get in through the password reset feature. Wordfence blocked the IP, and when I found out what was going on, blocked the IPs permanently. BTW: I am not even using the premium version. Think I will sign up for premium today.
Amazing plugin! Must have!
This is very very informative.
I had no idea how many times people have been trying to hack my site.
This even gives you the login details they tried to hack with, so that is very helpful. Hint: NEVER use the login "admin"!
Hey, it is a good product
PRINCIPAL FROM RUSSIA
I fill me safe
I recently upgraded to Wordfence after several brute force attempts to hack my WordPress site. Now I feel much safer with their sophisticated monitoring and blocking tools.
