      It’s all secure but I thought some of you might be interested to hear that on average there are over 200 attempts to hack into the admin account of this site every day. On occasions, we get over 2500 attacks in a single day. It’s a nasty world out there.

      I wonder how many attackers are human and how many are just software that keeps firing off random attacks hoping to catch a WordPress site on a bad day.

      A lot of it is automated.
