How to Prevent Brute Force Attack by Hackers to Gain Access to Your WordPress Site

Problem

To log into a WordPress Site, user name and password are required.

Hacker can obtain user name from the name of author in blog post, then goto WordPress default log-in page — https://your_domain_name.com//wp-admin/ , hacker will guess password to log into your WordPress site, hence “brute force”.

In a minute, if a hacker can guess 10 passwords then in a day, hacker can try 14,400 different passwords (10 x 60 x 24 ) to try to log into your WordPress site.

It is a matter of time, the hacker can guess the correct password.

 

Solution: use “Loginizer Security” plug-in to prevent brute force attack

  1. Install plug-in “Loginizer Security“.
  2. Under “Blacklist”, enter range of IP address that is not in your home country. This will reduce brute force attack significantly.

How to Make Civilization IV Run in Windows 8.1 64-bit

Civilization IV will give you these error messages in Windows 8.1 64-bit:-

  • “The program can’t start because D3DX9_32.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the progrom to fix the problem”; and
  • “Error loading shader libraries”

If these solutions do not work:-

  1. re-installing Civilization IV in “compatibility mode” as mentioned in Microsoft Community; or
  2. running “dxwebsetup.exe” to re-install DirectX version 9 as mentioned in Microsoft Community;

Then these will 100% solve the problems:-

  1. download “d3dx9_32.dll”, unzip and copy to folder “C:\Windows\SysWOW64”; and
  2. download “d3dx9_31.dll”, unzip and copy to folder “C:\Windows\SysWOW64”; this dll will solve “Error loading shader libraries”

This is because Windows 8.1 64-bit does not have “d3dx9_32.dll” and “d3dx9_31.dll” by default.

Source: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/to-those-with-d3dx9_32-dll-problems.232577/page-3

Reasons:-

  • Windows 8.1 64-bit by default is installed with DirectX 11 and it does not have all the dll files (d3dx9_xx.dll) of DirectX 9;
  • DirectX 9 is required to run old games such as Civilization IV  that support Windows Vista and below.
