We have been getting number of attack reports from clients with Wordpress installs and further investigating we found a global attacks on wordpress.
Right now there is a very severe and global attack on all Wordpress sites on the Internet and almost all hosting providers are affected. The attack is a brute-force attack which is global and highly distributed, This attack is well organized and again very, very distributed; we have seen high number of spoofed IP addresses involved in this attack. As the IP’s are spoofed, blocking the IP’s does not help much.
