There has been someone trying to hack my Wordpress blog for the last couple of weeks. I keep receiving this email from my blog security plugin:

A host, **IP address**(you can check the host at ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/**IP address**) has been locked out of the WordPress site at domain.com/blog until **date** at **time** due to too many login attempts. You may login to the site to manually release the lock if necessary.

This has been happening everyday recently.

Should I be worried? My password is very strong, so surely I don't need to worry about them guessing my password.

Check to see if they are coming from the same IP.

If so, ban them.

Also, was that message created by the Login Lockdown plugin?
