Word Press File Monitor hacked (2 posts)

    Manual Scan button gets redirected to an Attack Site , and, no file change email notices since March.

    I have been using the plugin WordPress File Monitor Plus version 1.3. I just noticed that I have not received notice of file changes on my website since 3-13-12, even though I have made many changes to pages. When I click on the Manual Scan button, I get redirected to to an "Attack Site" with a warning not to go there. The Attack Site url is http+://marketingvillage.ru/advertising/index.php (I added the + sign, which you can remove and proceed there at your own risk).

    I had my WordPress .htaccess file being overwritten constantly by these same Russian hackers a year ago. Ultimately I was able to configure a setting at the server, Godaddy, to stop the file from being over written. In this WP File Monitor case, I don't know what file is being hacked or if there is a setting at Godaddy hosting control panel to stop this.

    I deactivated and reactivated the plugin with no change. I have not tried to delete and reinstall it.

    I just updated from verson 1.3 to version 2.0 of File Monitor and got the same redirect to the Attack Site.
