Course description

Brute force attacks on WordPress websites are very frequent as it is one of the easiest way for hackers to take control of your site, which might have already been compromised without your knowledge.

A brute force attack consists on trying to login repeatedly in a WordPress blog guessing the username and password using software. When these attacks happen, your server's memory goes through the roof, causing performance problems and even the server dying.

Protecting your WordPress site from brute force attacks is not only a security measure you should take today, but also a speed optimization initiative. After you have completed the class it will take you less than 10 minutes to be 100% protected from brute force attacks.

This class is for administrators/owners of WordPress sites who should have access to one that is already installed and running.

Brute force attack protection when installing a new WordPress blog will be the subject of another class.
