Do we have the Bad Behavior plugin installed? I think that would help
with this. It would also help mitigate spam as well. I use Bad Behavior
+ Akismet on my personal blogs and they do a lot to keep spam at bay,
and I don't see a bunch of failed login attempts either. (Granted, my
sites are less popular than Fedora Magazine... )
