We all know about the people who think it is great fun to break into other people’s space – their email, their data, their website and so on. Most of us think it won’t happen to us.
In fact it is happening to you. Probably every day. You might just be unaware of it.
I have set my site up to record who attempts to login, and then tell me. Every day there is at least one attempt to login as ‘Admin’ or the site URL as the login id. When I see the notification I permanently ban that IP address.
The point is: if you have a ‘standard’ name for any of your login ids then you are playing Russian Roulette with your website. It is in your own best interest to change that now.
