Login Security
The Login Security module provides features that it categorizes as soft and hard
protections; soft protections just offer delays, which can help slow down attacks,
whereas hard protections require an administrator to intervene to reactivate an
account or allow access from a host. These are:
Request time delay (soft protection)—This time delay is used when log in
requests fail; to try to prevent, or at least reduce the effectiveness of brute
force attacks.
Block log in forms (soft protection)
Block account on a number of failed log in attempts (hard protection)
Block IP address on a number of failed log in attempts (hard protection)
Let's install this module; we need to download it from http://drupal.org/
project/login_security , decompress the files, and upload them to the modules
folder within our Drupal installation.
The final step to install the module is to check the Login Security box from the Other
category on the Modules page.
