I received this notice from the boys and girls that provide security over my website: “As of 11am eastern time this morning, we are monitoring the largest distributed brute force attack on WordPress installations that we’ve seen to date.”
Do you have a security program plugged into your website? Do you know when your website is under attack? Do you know HOW people are trying to attack your website?
I use a plugin called WordFence for my security on my websites and I love it! I am immediately notified when anyone logs into my account with administrator privileges (including me). I also know when someone attempts to log in to my account and uses the wrong password. I am also able to block specific individuals from logging into my account. There is no danger in blocking someone because they are there to do harm not to work with me.
