WordPress security… again

Over the past week there has been a major upsurge in attacks on WordPress sites. It appears they are trying the ‘admin’ username and a dictionary password attack. As I have said before, changing the admin username to something else is a really important thing to do. More info on The Register.

Personally I will make sure I never use ‘admin’ as the administrator account username. I will also consider installing the Google Authenticator plugin and link it to  the administrator account.
