Soo…I’ve been digging through my Limit Login Attempts logs and noticed that :O someone/thing has been trying to break into my site a lot more than I thought.

Ever since I installed the plugin, I’ve had as of now, 251 lockouts. Just a small sampling of the logs:

184.107.150.58 admin (3 lockouts)

(There were a couple attempts made with my username in the giant sea of admins.)

And then I took a look at Client’s site (mentioned in the above linked entry–let’s call them Expedition). The number of lock-outs they’ve had? 2042.
