Hi everyone,

would it be possible to have a feature built in under the 'Passwords' menu to temporarily lock a user account if the password was incorrectly typed in for x number of times.

i.e. if a user name is compromised, and the hacker, intruder, etc. is attempting to breach the server security measures, it would be of a great benefit to lock the account for let's say 15, 30, 45, 60 minutes or so.

Thanks.
