All week WordPress blogs have been under assault by brute force attack (denial of service/DOS). Basically, hackers know the default login for WP is “admin” and then throw thousands of IPs trying to hack the password- I heard up to 90,000+ IPs are involved in trying to hack our blogs!
What can you do? First, secure your password. Make sure it has a space, special character, number, and capital letter.
Next, install the plugin “Limit Login Attempts“. This will prevent hackers from trying to login over and over wiht different passwords.
Keep your site safe!
