[resolved] Cache.php found - Possible Backdoor (3 posts)

    When downloading my site, my virus software found a file named CACHE.PHP with a notice that it may be a possible back-door object.

    I'm thankful that I found this, but does WP use a file named cache.php?

    Lastly, how did this file get onto my site? Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    There's a cache.php file in the wp-includes folder.

    I just went hunting and found one in my plugins folder -- I think relating to a Cache plugin. I renamed it, and things are still chugging-along.
