You’ve Been Outed Hacker Scum!
It infuriates me that there are people in the world who have nothing else to do but create bots to go in search of vulnerable blogs that have their login as ADMIN. That said, it infuriates me further that I now know the IP address of one of them. Hello hacker in Germany…you scumbag.
How do I know this? Because I have a very valuable plugin called Limit Login Attempts. By using this plugin, I get email alerts whenever there have been repeated login attempts on my WordPress blog. Almost every day there are 16 attempts and then the IP address is locked out for 24 hours.Â I’m not affiliated with this plugin, I just think it’s a life, er, blog saver and I want to make sure everyone knows about it. So, Marcel Edler doing business as Optimate-Server, you can go to hell. Karma can’t come soon enough!
