If you have a WordPress blog or website, WordPress security must be an issue for you. I'm sure you must have heard about hackers attacking blogs and websites of other people.

So as to stop this from happening you need to set up Login Lockdown. It is a plugin that allows users to try to login with a password three times. Following that the IP address will be banned from the server for a specific amount of time.
