How can we change the Admin URL path of Magento so that it can be more secure and protect somewhat from brutal attacks? I believe its possible with an xml entry change only. Can anyone shed some light on this please?

Yes, you are right. Its fairly easy.

Open the xml file /app/etc/local.xml, and find the <frontName> tag, and then change the ‘admin’ part it to something secure

<frontName><![CDATA[new-secret-admin-path]]></frontName>
