    Wordfence flagged this as a High Severity Problem:
    * WordPress core file modified: wp-admin/includes/class-wp-site-health-auto-updates.php
    I googled that php file and it didn’t come up as a virus anywhere, I don’t think. Does anyone know why it was flagged this way? Thank you for any suggestions.

    Hi @cgl102770,

    That filename itself is not malicious, however Wordfence detected that the file was modified from its original state.

    Can you open that file up, and copy-paste its contents into something like pastebin and share the link here?

    I’ll compare it to the original version to see if anything was changed.

    Hi again,

    I took a look at the file you linked. It is identical to the version found in WordPress 5.2.0.

    Can you mark the issue as fixed and re-run the scan to see if the same error pops up again?

    Thank you. I ran a scan, it came up again:
    WordPress core file modified:
    wp-admin/includes/class-wp-site-health-auto-updates.php
    Type: File
    Issue Found June 26, 2019 1:10 pm
    High
    REPAIR IGNORE DETAIL

    But once again it didn’t say what was wrong, and I guess since you found no changes, it’s a false positive?

    I have been getting this false positive on all sites from both Wordfence and Defender Pro for about a month now. Wherever these two draw their files for comparison from, has the wrong version, or perhaps WordPress modifies this file post-installation/according to settings made?
