Hackers are likely Attacking your Digital Properties

Hackers from Brazil to Spain and Ukraine are tirelessly trying to guess the passwords on several of my client’s WordPress Websites. It is rather disturbing to see daily attacks.

There are several WordPress login security plugins that work well to protect Websites by locking out IP addresses for several hours or days. I suggest you look into them as well as making sure your passwords are STRONG on all your social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

It’s a jungle out there.

Here is a strong password generator:

Here is a way to geo-locate the IP address of a hacker (provides country and city based on IP address):

http://www.iplocation.net/

IP addresses of the hacker’s ISP (Internet Service Provider) are usually provided by your security software in a log or within an email to your administrator. Place them into http://www.iplocation.net/ and you’ll get an idea of where the bad guys are located. Looking up this information provides little solace, but it provides a constant reminder that you must be vigilant in order to protect what is yours (and your client’s).
