If you run a wordpress blog, you really should be aware that there is a global attack on wordpress blogs going on.
It’s coming from a bot net and is an attempt to find blogs that have their admin account enabled with easy to guess passwords.
I noticed the attack a couple of months ago when, while watching my web server log scrolling by, I noticed a significant number of attempts to use the wp-login.php script from random IP addresses.
A bit of research turned up information on the global attack.
Obviously I wanted to do something about it to protect my server.
