Some folk might be having problems trying to login to the site. I don’t know much about this, but here’s what I do know:
- When I tried to login today, I received a response “WordPress administrator area access disabled temporarily due to widespread brute force attacks.” As far as I know, you can neither login nor logout. However, your current login will still expire (as did mine).
- Here’s a report that is probably related: Brute Force Attacks Build WordPress Botnet.
In case you are wondering how I managed to post this – I was actually logged in with two different browsers. My login with “firefox” (my preferred browser) has expired. My login with “rekonq” has not yet expired. I think it has another week to go. So I am posting this from “rekonq”.
