WordPress Attacks!

If you are a user of WordPress I’d ask you to please consider installing the Limit Login Attempts Plugin [Link] over the last 24 hours there have been several blogs under attack – appears to be directed at the login process for WordPress so this plugin will help limit the number of times some one can attempt to guess your password! Too a STRONG password is key!

Need help making a stronger password? Your password of “password” is not safe try to have something stronger, use this Online Password Tool [Link] helps you create a password, I’d recommend 8-10 characters long, and if possible check all the boxes, if you use !@#$%^&*()_ type characters it does help secure your password more as it’s not the standard single word password which some dictionary based attacks may guess.

Please be safe with your installs! If you are in need of assistance to get things secured up please don’t hesitate to open a trouble ticket!
