    Hi!

    Today morning I had a problem about an attack against some websties hosted in my server. This caused apache very slow and high load.

    A lot of IP address (about 900 address) trying to access wp-login.php of some websites (about 20 websites), at the same time.
    Do you have any way to block this using modsecurity rules?

    I could found it in some threads about it, but some are to old. I´m using the last cpanel version, with easyapache4 and the new modsecurity tools.

    Very thank you

    Best
    Joao

    Hi Joaosavioli,
    I am not sure about ModSecurity tools works in this case. I suggest you to rename your WordPress login URL
