.htaccess Login block

Simple plugin to block login hijackers using apache and .htaccess. Simple and resource efficient way to protect your blog. Works with Apache from 1.3

Every failed login is counted and if configurable threshold is hit, plugin will block access to wp-login.php in .htaccess, so that hijackers won't be able to try anymore and at the same time - won't use server resources.

If the same IP keeps trying after first block has expired, it is possible to block it from accessing website completely.

Blocking visitor in .htaccess is the most simple and most resource friendly way of stopping webpage abuse and wasting server resources.
