Brute Force Login Attacks Explained - Better WordPress Security | WP Learning Lab

#1 Biggest Security Threat Facing WordPress this year: http://bit.ly/WordPress-Security2

What is a Brute Force Attack?

A hacker gains access to your website by guessing
a correct username and password combination.

It is a trial and error method most often executed by automated software.

What on your site is vulnerable?

To carry out a Brute Force Attack hackers usually target one of two places:

1. The login page or the wp-login.php file
2. The xmlrpc.php file

How can you protect your website?

1. Password protect the login page via .htaccess - https://youtu.be/oX4Zpyxsx0c
2. Change the login page URL from its default - https://youtu.be/_c4l6Vnr9aQ
3. Lock out IPs that enter too many incorrect username/password combinations - https://youtu.be/QAeGZMkdWHI
4. Disable the xmlrpc.php file via .htaccess - https://youtu.be/WiIaz-Ik3tE
