Today, I received an email from my web host letting me know that there is a massive attack against WordPress users which is the platform that I use for this blog, as well as, many other bloggers. More importantly, the attackers are attacking those that use “admin” as a login name.
Just a few minutes ago, my blog was attacked, I know this b/c I got an alert that someone tht is not me tried logging into my blog from the administrator URL 7 times in 120 minutes!
Thank goodness, I had installed a plugin that basically shuts down anyone’s ability to get onto the blog and I was sent an email alerting me that I needed click “forgot password” and a link would be sent me email address to change my password.
Don’t people have anything else to do with lives besides trying to hack blogs!
