Prevents bruteforce attacks by disabling authentication for an user when too many password attempt failures are seen within a short range of time.

This plugin disables authentication for an user if :

  • more than 3 password failures occur in less than 20 seconds
  • these failures are all linked to the same user

The user account is then locked for 20 seconds after the last authentication attempt.
