The warnings of file changes and the ability to display side by side any changes in files is a very useful feature. One plug-in that I use often has intermediate changes or additions to the files before a new version is issued. I am able to check any changes, when advised by Wordfence. I am puzzled by a recent warning about one such file:
“Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/methods/googledrive.php
File type: Plugin
Issue first detected: 12 hours 1 min ago.
This file belongs to plugin "UpdraftPlus - Backup/Restore" version "1.7.41" and has been modified from the file that is distributed by WordPress.org for this version. Please use the link to see how the file has changed. ….. “
However if I try to display the changes I get the following message:
“Wordfence: Viewing File Differences
The two panels below show a before and after view of a file on your system that has been modified. The left panel shows the original file before modification. The right panel shows your version of the file that has been modified. Use this view to determine if a file has been modified by an attacker or if this is a change that you or another trusted person made. If you are happy with the modifications you see here, then you should choose to ignore this file the next time Wordfence scans your system.
File type: Plugin File
Plugin Name: UpdraftPlus - Backup/Restore
Plugin Version: 1.7.41
There are no differences between the original file and the file in the repository.”
Why am I getting this warning if no differences?
