source of inspiration (

2. Add failedloginblocker.middleware.FailedLoginBlockerMiddleware to
3. Run 'python syncdb'
4. Restart your web server, if necessary.

Settings (set in if you want to override the defaults)
FLB_MAX_FAILURES - Number of failures to allow before blocking logins.
Default is set to 5.
FLB_BLOCK_INTERVAL - The interval from the last failed attempt to determine
whether the current login attempt is to count as a failure.

has expired.
