    Default Wordpress hack attempts

    Some clown has been trying to hack into one of my wp sites all day. Luckily, I have several security plugins installed. If you run a WP site, you might want to consider getting the following plugin:

    Limit Login Attempts
    WordPress › Limit Login Attempts

    It's brilliant. The would be hacker keeps trying to hack into my site via different IP addresses, and the plugin keeps banning the IP addresses of all the failed login attempts.

    Here's a record of the IP addresses that were banned TODAY.

    174.142.210.218 admin (1 lockout)
    5.9.81.50 admin (1 lockout)

    209.191.186.199 admin (1 lockout)
    82.194.82.102 admin (1 lockout)
    118.69.198.230 admin (1 lockout)
    67.205.107.173 admin (1 lockout)
    195.16.88.174 admin (1 lockout)
    46.252.193.47 admin (1 lockout)

    188.132.179.34 admin (1 lockout)
    46.32.226.96 admin (1 lockout)
    206.126.97.12 admin (1 lockout)

    Anyway, I don't think that this would be hacker will be able to crack my password. I just wanted to recommend this brilliant plugin to anyone running a WP site.

    Over 24 hours later, and he is still trying to hack in I could think of much better things that I'd rather be doing with my time. Unreal!

    Thanks for the heads up OZ

    I've recently installed Wordfence and I must say this is the best security plugin I've ever used.

    WordPress › Wordfence Security

    Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.

    If protecting your WP from hackers, script kiddies, misbehaving bots, undesirable crawlers etc etc is important to you, check this plugin out, I highly recommend it!

    It even identifies and automatically bans fake google bots

    Thats a lot of attempts!

    If thats what has come in today, it looks like he is using a script, and is trying to brute force his way into your admin, and running the script through proxies(hence the number of diff IPs).

    Wouldn't surprise me if the idiot is doing this to multiple blogs.

    Default Change Your WordPress Username

    If your WordPress username is "admin" you should change it to something more secure. This article shows how easy it is using phpMyAdmin: How to Change your WordPress Username

    NB! Always make a backup of your database before making changes.

    I also use wordfence and it notifies me when one of those A....holes has been locked out.

    Besides backing up before making changes, you need one at all times if (or when) one of those d......heads does get it!

    Hackers would make more money trying something legit - they are not really being smart. I get a bigger 'thrill' out of making money the right way!
