It seems there has been a recent surge in attacks on WordPress sites. The brute force attack takes the form of trying to break into your site by repeatedly attempting to log in to your Admin area with computer-generated credentials.
It is recommended that you make sure you have a very secure password. A secure password mixes things up by using letters, numbers, upper and lower case letters, and special characters such as &#)@!, etc. It is also recommend to NOT have a username of “admin.”
