Our login has been blocked as a precautionary measure from the brute force attack. How long is our login disabled? I would like to put these security measures in place, but cannot access the site to do so.
thanks in advance.

Your Wordpress admin is disabled approximately 10 minutes from the last failed login. Of course, it your Wordpress site is under a brute force attack, this timer will keep resetting and will not let you in. You will need to place some sort of protection within your Wordpress site to prevent failed logins. I recommend blocking all and allowing only based on IP. You could also place a secondary password as well.

After this protection is in place, try to log in again after about 10-15 minutes.
