Hello ooutsou8,

Thank you for our question. If your site has been targeted in these recent Wordpress attacks, the security precautions we've implemented may limit your own access to your WordPress admin dashboard. We have chosen to proactively protect our customers from this attack to avoid a potentially larger security problem on your account.

This issue is not isolated to InMotion Hosting, and is currently affecting multiple providers.

The link on the page you provided, goes to our full guide on on Wordpress Brute Force attack, I recommend following this guide, specifically the section titled "Lock down WordPress admin access with .htaccess."

This will allow you to regain access to Wordpress.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

We did everything except "Temporaily disable CPU intensive login limit plugins" , Yet to gain access to the login page. Its still blocked, and we are unsure how to get rid of this.

Hello outsou8,

Thank you for your question. I checked your wordpress sites, and some of them have added the .htaccess, while others haven't. I recommend adding the .htaccess rule to all of your wordpress installations.

At this point, since you have followed all the steps in our Wordpress Brute-force guide, and you are still not able to login, I recommend :
"Temporaily disabling CPU intensive login limit plugins"

Anything that hits wp-login several times can trigger a "login limit" plugin to block access.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

//I recommend :
"Temporaily disabling CPU intensive login limit plugins"//

But to do this, I must gain the login access first, correct?
