A Brute Force attack can be translated to “een aanval met brute kracht” in Dutch.
In this type of attack, the attacker uses sheer force rather than clever tactics.
A Brute Force attack on WordPress is often executed on the login page.
If you don’t have proper security measures in place, an attack can continue until the attacker successfully breaches your website.
As this attack involves computers, it can be very fast, with thousands of login attempts fired at your login page every minute.
