How To Stop Brute Force
Login Hacks WordPress
If you have a popular blog eventually you will attract kiddie script hackers running simple brute force dictionary scripts to try to hack your site.
These hacks take up lots of a servers resources and can greatly slow down performance of a WordPress site.
This juvenile illegal activity can be easily stopped with a great WordPress plugin called simply Limit Login Attempts.
The settings out of the install are fine but you change attempts and IP bans if you wish.
The programmer of this great plugin is Johan Eenfeldt.
