The new cookie feature is great! Thank you for rolling it out.July 6, 2013 at 5:57 am #56157
The new cookie feature looks fantastic. There is something I don’t understand about it and am afraid to turn it on as I don’t know the effect. So I wanted to check.
My understanding is that I will have a new login URL and my uber secret password. This will put a cookie on whatever computer I try to access on…like if I go to visit Mom…I can access there? I have more than one computer I use in my own home too.
Funny, to watch the creeps try to get more creative. Lately I found they must have looked at my site and found my personal name on my free download (I guess) and then tried using that! I changed my WP user name but they keep trying.
Thanks again for the security and help!July 6, 2013 at 6:05 am #56158
Separate topic on All-in-One-Security.
I can’t seem to get the domain look up to work.
I made a couple of screen prints but it wouldn’t let me put them in here.
I will send to Key Master in an email.
Not a big deal just thought you would be interested.

Hi Pam, The cookie based brute force attack prevention doesn’t give you a new password. It just gives you a *secret* URL that you (the admin) knows and can log in using that URL. Anyone else directly going to the wp-admin login area will get blocked. I will try to put together a tutorial for that feature.July 7, 2013 at 8:06 pm #56160
Thank you so much for taking the time to give me all of that data!
And yes, I would say it is of course a “him” except kind “hims” like you would make that a false generality.
Fantabulous! I will look forward to the tutorial. You know I have learned to be uber careful about doing anything I don’t understand.
It is sort of freaky that the creeps are attempting to use my actual name to hack in. It’s like when my brand new stereo was stolen from my 1973 Green Ford Maverick. How dare they? Would have been kinder to leave the stereo and just taken the car.
