Sub-directory installed WordPress issue (2 posts)

    If your WordPress is installed to a sub-directory instead of the root, the automatically entered robots.txt paths are incorrect. For example:

    Disallow: /wp-admin/

    Should actually be:

    Disallow: /sub-dir/wp-admin/

    I installed this for a clients site- worked great at first- but some how a hacker was able to use this plugin to install a regions.com and rbc phishing files on this customers account- even with bullet proof security and Ultimate Security Checker both.

    The place that manages our racks was notified by regions and removed the plugin.

    just an fyi- they feel its a vulnerability in the plugins code. However since it was deleted with out us being able to check I cannot say for certain what vulnerability it was.
