To help midigate the attacks add the plugin Login limiter to your word press install.

We at Canhost support began to notice login attempts to word press from multiple ip addresses this week. The nature of the attempts and the large number of ip addresses the attempts were bypassing normal security blocks. We updated and hardened our servers with a different method as well  to isolate these ip addresses and block them. We came across this blog post today that explains what we were seeing this week and gives word press users some very good methods to prevent there site from being compromised. Please read this article and if you have any questions on how to implement the suggestions please contact Canhost support. javascript:nicTemp();
