    It's literally a new website, 2 days old, only got a twitter acc, fb acc and posted on a couple of forums & reddit totally unrelated to IM & SEO to see if I could start getting some legit backlinks & traffic and someone already trying to bruteforce my admin account o.o It's not like they'll succeed but it's bothersome.


    Ever happened to anyone?

    This is a regular accurence at least for me anyway. It does become bothersome I usually just add a htaccess to the domain dir restricting all IPs apart from the ones I operate from along with cloud flare.

    I dont even care for bruteforce, I just install a plugin that limits login attempts.

    Even without it they would need a few million years to get the password.

    Ye I'm not even scared especially since he's trying to crack the "admin" account and such an account doesn't even exist lmao

    change login page to something else + 40 character username = can't bruteforce.
