Hi Mitzie,

I am looking for a few plugins that we can push to the staging instance and test.

I will reply with what I find.

Subject: Fedora Magazine - Failed login attempts

I logged in to the Magazine today because I would like to start in an 
article. Jetpack's Security Audit is a widget from jetpack that we have 
enabled, which shows you the latest security logs in the administrator's 
dashboard, and I saw that there are 287 failed logins (and counting) to 
the username 'admin'

Is there a way to implement a captcha plugin at the login page? Is there 
anything else we could do?
I have removed all privileges of 'admin' for now (since it's an account 
that non of us use), and btw I promoted mattdm from editor to admin.
