Brute Force Attack on Self-Hosted WordPress Sites

We are receiving issues faced by lots of people not able to access their wordpress admin panel. If you also have a self hosted wordpress site, please take the below mentioned preventive measures to protect your site.

  1. Login to your admin panel.
  2. Go to ‘Edit profile’
  3. Change your password.
  4. Requirements for password: upper and lowercase letters, at least eight characters long, and including “special” characters (^%$#&@*)

If you are not able to login to the wordpress admin panel, please contact your hosting support.
