Don’t use admin for your wordpress blog

Today, I removed the “admin” user from my WordPress blogs.  There is a bot that is hacking passwords by “Brute” force.  That means that they are using “admin” and a dictionary of passwords and trying millions of times, until they gain access to your blog.

My password keeper, LastPass, has more information about it in this blog post.

Also, the Matt, the creator of WordPress has information about how to change it on his blog
