Great post! I've had a wordpress website for a while and I constantly have to try to get rid of the hackers. Wordpress website maintenance can be such a pain to keep up on. This looks like it will do the trick though, thanks!

Brilliant post Kim!

I found your post after Blackknight retweeted it. Since Im hosted with them and most of my websites are Wordpress I clicked.

Since reading iv installed WP-DB Manager & Exploit Scanner to each of my WP websites.

A really simple way of protecting yourself from bruteforce is changing the Admin username to something else & as you stated creating strong passwords.

Thanks again for great info!

Word press is a great platform; unfortunatly, in my opinion it relies far more on the user to sort out security, and their lies the problem. Passwords are usually easy to crack and are seldom changed.
