POSSIBLE WordPress Under Attack again !!!

ALERT - ALERT - WordPress Based website under attack Again !!!



Potential WordPress problem (Brute Force attack against WordPress websites)
We have monitored on-going brute-force attack against WordPress websites, in order to keep your WordPress website secure, we recommend you do the following:

1. Please change your password for WordPress admin area.

2. Go to your cPanel > File Manager and find your wp-login.php file.



Temporary rename wp-login.php file (for example into wp-login1.php).

You need to change a line in your wp-login.php to reflect the change to the file name. Its line 671 where the form action refers to wp-login.php

-------------------------Update---------------------------

wp-login.php is temporary disabled because of huge brute force attack. Please rename wp-login.php to something else.
