    Welcome to the internet.
    Make sure you've got a secure password, blacklist those IPs, and forget about it.

    You should install wordfence. I use it on all of my sites and it will keep you save from anything. Just keep your setting on checked correctly for login attempts etc and you wont have to worry.

    Or else, someone with similar domain name got confused. He entered on the address bar : "hisdomains.com(/net/whatever)/wp-admin " or "his-domain.com(/net/whatever)/wp-admin" and thinks that yours was his.
    He attempted to tried all usernames and passwords he was sure set for his website and there we got the lol.

    It happened on me once, and yeah that's a lol.
    Ps. I even clicked the "lost password" too and wondered why no email from the website about it. Few hours later, I just lmao-ed realizing the stupidity of mine.

    Use BulletProof Security and Wordfence plugin.
    Set custom rules in both plugins or at least in Wordfence.

    Disable directory listing, access to wp-admin & wp-include, set password for wp-admin (login page) etc
