Password Security – brute force attack
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!
