While I am out of town my webmaster Jose Negron informs that, once again, you have blocked him from accessing our website. He weds to install a Paypal front end to our new online training course so our clients can begin accessing it. Please make this happen and stop blocking him or I will have to move my business to another web host outfit

You can only communicate with me via email at [email protected]

Thank you

Hello Carl, Thank you for contacting us today. I looked at your website and it seems you are running Wordpress. No matter where it is hosted, Wordpress websites are a popular target for hackers, since it the most common platform, with millions of users. Here is a detailed article on the recent Wordpress Brute Force attacks. If your site has been targeted in this attack, the security precautions we've implemented may limit your own access to your WordPress admin dashboard. If Jose's WordPress admin access has been blocked, he can simply wait 10 minutes, or add his IP address to the .htaccess file. Since this is a public forum, my response will automatically be sent to the email address you logged in with, I can email you a link to this response however. I also X'd out your full email address for security purposes. If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, -John-Paul
