It’s possible this blog

“Spread the Word”

“This is the highest volume brute force attack we have seen to date. It may also be using the fresh credentials that were provided in the database released on December 5th, so it may achieve a higher than normal success rate. Please spread the word among the WordPress community to create awareness of this new threat. You can suggest the following actions to your fellow WordPress site owners:

.

Install a firewall like Wordfence that intelligently blocks brute force attacks. etc”

 

“What we know at this time:

  • The attack has so far peaked at 14.1 million attacks per hour.

  • The total number of IPs involved at this time is over 10,000.

  • We are seeing up to 190,000 WordPress sites targeted per hour.

  • This is the most aggressive campaign we have ever seen by hourly attack volume.”

Wordfence protection is not available for free blogs like this unless it is upgraded to a business account which will not be done – so enjoy it now as long as it may survive the attack.
