I get a 403 Forbidden error every single time I update the BPS Security plug-in. This has happened 3 times in a row (ever since I installed the plug-in). The entire site goes down, I get locked out of the Dashboard, and I have to call my hosting company an ask them to go in and clear out errors just to get the site back online. I just went through this with my host again. They said that the permission of the .htaccess file had gotten changed to 404 - they changed it back to 644 and everything seems to be working again.
This is really frustrating - can you please help me understand why this might be happening?
