Brute Force Stop – joomla sercurities Login and folders protection extensions

This plugin provides means to avert Brute-Force-Attacks on your Joomla-Installation. For this purpose, the plugin stores information on failed login attempts, so that when reaching a configurable number of such failed login attempts the attacker’s IP address can be blocked. Furthermore, you can configure notifications about failed logins and blocked IP addresses, as well as a variable delay for a failed login attempt.

The component included in the package will allow you to view the blocked IP addresses and add and change existing blocks, as well as viewing all failed log attempts.

In some parts, this plugin was inspired by the following plugins: Login Failed Log, Redirect Failed Logins and Ban IP Address/Range.
