I have posted the issue on github issue list. I have also made an attempt
to patch the issue and made a pull request on github. I am not certain
about the values of the constants  "bruteForceLockTimePeriod" and
"bruteForceLockAttemptTotalTime" as *I don't have stats*. Please give your
opinions on value of the constants mentioned above.


According to my definition firstly we will check if time between two
consecutive request is less than *bruteForceLockTimePeriod*, if so it will
be brute force. Secondly I am testing that if total number of request are
more than or equal to *bruteForceLockAttempts* and time is less than
*(I have introduced this variable) then also it will be a brute force. So
we are handling both the situations separately.

Please correct me if I am thinking wrong.
