Post subject:  Wordpress wp-login.php rename

I was reading that there was/is massive bruteforce attack at WordPress sites. The attack is targeting the file wp-login.php and try to connect using admin as user. One very simple solution for protecting the site and the server is to rename file wp-login.php to something else.

I renamed my wp-login.php and edited all references inside the file to new name. I managed to login successfully and to use site but now when i try to log-out i receive the error that file wp-login.php does not exist. Can someone help me with information what other file refers to wp-login.php when i try to log-out ?
