WordPress Under Brute Force Attack: Targeting Admin Usernames

From: Mari K.

Blogsite Studio has posted a new item, 'WordPress Under Brute Force Attack:
Targeting Admin Usernames   '

"We learned from Ars Technica that an all-out "Brute Force Attack" was being
committed on WordPress sites by a powerful Botnet that attacked US banks last
year. The botnet, they said, is seeking out, among other things, default user
names like “Admin.”

Bloggers – If you have "Admin" as your username, change it immediately. Then, change your password.
