After, say, the 5th time that you get the "invalid userid or password" message, you're actually being stopped by a "tried too many times" block but the message you get doesn't change.I forgot to say: and the response time doesn't change pattern either. If it's been the same for the tries that were actually processed, it stays the same; if it's been changing in some pattern, it keeps the same pattern. The point is that there's no way for the hacker to tell.
