Captcha for AdminCP login

The acp is vulnerable to brute forcing password attempts the way it is.... This way a hacker can make significantly less attempts to crack a password. So even if your admincp directory "gets leaked" if you've changed it, anyone trying to bruteforce it, won't be as effective.

What the good people above said. Use .htaccess and IP addresses. There's about a snowball's chance in hell of getting brute force hacked.
