    Hello,
    I just installed the sucuriscan plugin last night and now I'm getting tons of hits to my website from itself.
    Here is what the hits look like..
    The Folder/File it's hitting is:
    /wordpress/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php

    The referral url is:
    http://www.mywebsite/wordpress/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sucuriscan

    Why is Sucuriscan hitting this one file over and over again? Is there some issue I should be aware of?

    Should I post the contents of that php here?

    Hi, where are you seeing the logs for this happening? Can you post a few lines of the logs?

    Did this happen right after you installed and activated the plugin or did you also perform any of the options such as the integrity checking or hardening?

    These requests were probably being generated by the WordPress Heartbeat, but since the plugin's code has evolved and we added/modified many parts of it, it will be hard to find this bug again, if you see it again let us know.

    I've been thinking to add an option to control the hearbeat, but never thought it would be a real problem, if there's anyone out there who wants this feature to be added to the plugin let us know.
