Password Security – brute force attack

  • Hi all

    Has anyone come across a fix for bbPress inregards to brute force attacks on passwords?

    A brute force attack allows a user to attempt to login to the application with a valid user account using a dictionary of words for the password without the account being locked out.

    bbPress allows multipul attempts at password entry without locking the user out. This means that someone can use a application to hack into a users account.

    Has anyone made a fix/ plugin for this? Or know a way of solving this?

    Help/ thoughts would be greatly appreciated! :)
