[resolved] Constant Changes to et_temp folder (4 posts)

    I am getting a dozen emails per day that files in the wp-content/uploads/et_temp/ folder are being changed. Most of the changes are happening to .jpeg files. What is causing this? Is it the TimThumb Vulnerability plug-in?

    Constant changes in that folder are happening because you have a plugin that is generating a number of images regularly in that folder.

    You know what is happening in there is safe then you can do one of two things.

    Choose to ignore image file extensions site wide or put in an exclusion for the temp folder.

    To ignore that folder use:

    /full/path/to/folder/public_html/wp-content/uploads/et_temp*

    Is there a way to find out which plug-in is doing that?
