    Is my website being hacked. I used Better WP Security. Files have been changed and people are trying to log in, Better WP security is locking them out.

    I don't see the file changes on the outside of the website. I only see it in the log.

    What are they doing and how can I fix this?

    Here's the picture

  3. You may get a better result if you post in the dedicated sub-forum for that plugin.

    Since you did not post a link to your site it's really difficult to tell if your site really is hacked or not.

    If you suspect your site has been hacked you can check it at Sucuri.

    Your site appears clean: http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/www.universalcoachinstitute.com/

    Sometimes (not always) you will get a notice that files have changed for legit reasons like cache plugins changing files, etc. I have not used that particular security plugin so I do not know.

    It is also normal to find people(bots, whatever) trying to log in here and there.

    If the plugin has some sort of internal scanner then try that to verify.

    Thank you so much racer. I really do appreciate it. I think that it is the cache plugin.
