Hello,

I was looking through the "Click" logs to review where people were spending their time. I found some guest accounts were attempting to gain access to the WordPress admin. see the example below.

Example:
7th May 9:49 AM  208.113.160.8 Guest /wp-admin/

IP addresses which attempted access:
** 208.113.160.8
** 209.212.158.76
** 213.251.182.113
** 104.236.19.214
** 159.253.36.50

1) Do you use wordpress?
2) Have others reported similar incidents?
3) Do I need to be concerned with any type of security breach on our website?

I have every confidence that your sites are secure, but I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you needed to investigate further.

Regards,
Shawn

Yeah they are likely just bots crawling the web thinking your site runs on wordpress and trying to break into it. So long as you have a strong password you should be ok. After a few password attempts a captcha is required to block out the bots and brute forcing attacks.
