Using the excellent WordPress Firewall plugin. This excellent piece of kit automatically detects attacks and blocks them, sending you an e-mail each time. If the guy quoted above had been using the plugin he never would have been hacked!
In once case, Iíve received over 1,000 of these e-mails on the same day! It was only after I blocked the IP address of the attacker (included in the e-mail) that the attacks ceased.
