    I was wondering if anyone else has had these problem's with WOW Slider. I use Wordfence plugin for WP protection and I'm finding that when it scans and checks plugins and themes for changes in files, it finds some of the WOW Slider files have been changed. You can't even restore the original file through Wordfence, I end up having to delete WOW Slider plugin from my FTP in order to get my site back to working order. I reinstall WOW Slider's latest version and all works fine. This has happen 3 times and on two of my WP sites that I use WOW Slider on. I've checked my sites for any backdoors from hackers and any files that shouldn't be there. If your using WP and not scanning your files It would go totally unnoticed. I'd would really like to know how these files get changed. Any feedback would be helpful.

    Probably, WOWSlider updates its files by itself. For example, the current version of your plugin is 3.0. You install the module generated with the latest version 3.3 of WOWSlider. So, plugin's version will be updated automatically to v.3.1.
    Try to uninstall WOWSlider plugin and install the module generated with the latest version 3.3 of WOWSlider as WordPress plugin. So, you'll use the latest version and WOWSlider will not update its files.
    Please write us, if problem will persist.
