    Someone has been trying to hack into one of my word press powered blogs. Received a notification via one of the new security plugins I have enabled.

    16 Failed Login Attempts (4 lockouts(s)) from ip: 31.186.100.200
    Last user attempt: admin
    IP was blocked for 24 hours
    10 lockouts since last reset
    1 IP is currently blocked from trying to log in

    176.42.242.97 admin (1 lockout)
    91.93.14.73 admin (1 lockout)
    188.143.232.45 admin (1 lockout)
    37.115.185.67 admin (2 lockouts)
    142.4.212.172 admin (1 lockout)
    31.186.100.200 admin (4 lockouts)


    These guys will never give up. Secure your sites and keep them up to date to reduce such attacks.

    hello there,

    install wp better security plugin, make the necessary changes...etc it seems like it's a Brute Force attack.. so you have to change the Admin username and ID... plus add some complexed passwords for you and your users...

    Goodluck

    wordfence has a built in firewall, and I definitely agree with themes4all. As soon as you install wp better security, they will demand that you change from using admin to another username.
    Mind you, doesnt hurt to keep doing regular backups of your site just in case.

    Hi

    I changed my username a long time ago and have the security plugins installed.

    This was more of a warning to the rest :)

    You can use a plugin call IP Ban or WP Ban. Ban all the enemy IP.


    Good Luck
