DescriptionI had to react to the massiv brute force attacks against WordPress admin accounts.

see
http://codex.wordpress.org/Brute_Force_Attacks

and the recent explosion of attacks:
http://blog.sucuri.net/2013/04/the-wordpress-brute-force-attack-timeline.html

My WordPress customers are not allowed to use the name admin for user accounts anymore.

I want to delete the admin user.
Can I do this in the database?

The UI should allow this for the average super admin with out DB knowhow.

TagsNo tags attached.

Hello.

"Plugins can be used to limit the number of login attempts made on your site, or block people from accessing wp-admin: " Not needed in LS : core included.

And you can change the username for admin in the DB.
