Latest visitors cpanel question

  • Answered
Hi, I had attacks made on my wordpress site today and in the latest visitors section in cpanel I saw the IP adress that was trying to lo in my account. I edited my .htaccess file so that IP is blocked but I can still see that IP adress trying to access my login page STATUS 302 METHOD POST Size Bytes 0. I also installed the plugin to change the url of my dashboard.

Looking at this what do you think is happening, do I need to do something else or is everything o.k. is that IP adress is in fact blocked?
