This security plugin is a complete fraud.
Once installed on my website and performed a high sensitivity test it found no less than 5 MALICIOUS FILES, 8 POTENTIALLY SUSPICIOUS FILES AND THE WORST 1381 SUSPICIOUS FILES!!!!
Suspecting that this was not true, I proceeded to perform the following test.
On a computer with a freshly installed copy of the original W10, all the updates done, an updated antivirus and without any virus detection, I installed a local copy of the latest version of WordPress in XAMPP.
I named this local version of WordPress Quttera in honor of these gentlemen.
I installed only the Quttera plugin and performed a high-sensitivity scan on this completely new installation of wordpress and then found:
3 MALICIOUS FILES and 8 POTENTIALLY SUSPICIOUS FILES !!!!
Funny, isn’t it?
I proceeded to install the Elementor plugin and then changed the report to:
3 MALICIOUS ARCHIVES and 11 POTENTIALLY SUSPECTIVE ARCHIVES !!!!
I proceeded to perform a third test.I installed the plugin Duplicator by Snap Creek and RANK MATH SEO this time the report was:
5 MALICIOUS AND 11 POTENTIALLY SUSPICIOUS FILES !!!!
These results appear in a clean WordPress installation, with no post, image, or page created, nothing!
I am completely convinced that this plugin is a scam.
Quttera’s owners scare you with false positives and countless suspicious files with the sole aim of making you pay for disinfecting something that is not infected and fattening Quttera’s wallet.
I hope this test will save users the time lost trying to clean something from viruses that is definitely not infected.
Wordpress should remove this plugin from its list
