Brute Force Login Attacks Thwarted by WordFence

Posted on Posted in Alert, Slider

There have been some questions in our forums about a new form of BullyXML-RPC attack on WordPress that has received some press coverage recently. To put your mind at ease and explain the details, we’ve published this blog post

The short version is that you are protected against brute force login via XML-RPC with Wordfence, even forms of the attack that use multiple login attempts. Wordfence monitors application usage rather than just pattern matching, so we are able to evaluate every login attempt as it arrives to give you the best possible protection.
