As sessions are connected to a request through a session cookie,
putting the failed attempts in the session for checking later is a bad
idea. A script attempting to crack your security will most likely NOT
be using cookies. So each request, all the many millions of them, will
seem to be clean/virgin requests, not multiple attempts. Each request
will create a blank new session with 0 previous attempts.
