  • same here.
    I’m running multi-site, did the upgrade, and nothing happens when I click on scan.

    BTW, rolling back to the previous version, and everything works like a charm from what I can tell, so it’s definitely related to the latest update for me.

    Do you mean you updated to 3.4.1, right? There is no 3.4.2 I can see.

    How do you roll back to previous version? Last one I had also working like a charm was 3.3.7, and for you?

    Yes, whatever the most recent update was.

    I downloaded, unzipped and replaced all the files in the wordfence directory with the previous version via FTP (good idea to backup the current wordfence folder, and your database, of course, before making those kinds of changes just in case).

    For me, that worked like a charm – back to previous version and running normally.

    Hi Guys,

    This issue is now fixed, please upgrade.

    If you’re using basic authentication for your /wp-admin/ directory please read our FAQ if your scans still don’t work. You may need to add an exclusion for your AJAX handler.

    But other than that edge case, the new version should fix this for you.



    Confirmed FIXED for me. Thanks!
