    Too many login attempts, by joncosby

    Hi,

    My blog’s been under a brute force attack, and I’ve taken the measure of password-protecting the wp-admin directory, in addition to the WordPress password. I also use the Limit Login Attempts plugin, set at 4 attempts and 10 minutes. After being away from the site for a few hours, I went to log back in. Before attempting to do so, wp-admin was locked for too many failed attempts. How is this possible? I have strong passwords. I understand LLA blocks the specific IP address, is this right? If not, do you think my directory password was cracked already?
