hey

i thought, it would be useful to have a Maximum number of login failures before soft blocking a user.
same thing as normal user login block, except, "This protection is efective during the time indicated at tracking time opion."

example:
Maximum number of login failures before detecting an ongoing attack: 10
Maximum number of login failures before soft blocking a user: 5
Maximum number of login failures before blocking a user: 10
Maximum number of login failures before soft blocking a host: 25
Maximum number of login failures before blocking a host: 50

Agreed. In fact this is the one thing I wanted from the module.

Has anyone started work on this? I'd like to sync up before I begin implementing it if there's already work done.

Version:6.x-1.x-dev» 7.x-1.x-dev

Bumping version.
