Comment on Security: Hide The WordPress Login and Admin Pages (wp-login.php) by Max.

Hi Paul,

I’m not sure comments here will still receive replies, but it’s worth a try. For two days now I encounter that bots occasionally attack the renamed login page of my site. I’ve changed the url after I’ve noticed it first, but within the next 24 hours attempts to register a user (which is disabled) will move to the new url (/mysecreturl?action=register). My question: How is it possible that they even detect this “secret” url, which doesn’t seem to be so secret anymore? My concern: could that be related to the latest release since I’ve never encountered that problem before?

Thanks in advance
Max

Thanks, Paul. There are no private pages or posts and I haven’t installed any new plugins over the past few months and only encountered the problem for the last two days, that’s why I thought it might have to do with your recent update. Renaming the login page felt better before, but I guess I will learn to live with it. 😉
