THE THREAT
Brute force attacks on WordPress login.

THE OBJECTIVE
Block repeated failed login attempts and block by IP

PROPOSED SOLUTION
Use plugin to block brute force attacks by banning IPs with multiple failed attempts.

Plugin: Login Lock Down

This plugin will automatically block IP addresses when multiple failed login attempts are detected. By default the plugin locks an IP for an hour after 3 failed attempts, but this can be changed in the Options panel. Admins have access to release the blocked IP addresses as and when required.
