Support » Plugin: Quttera Web Malware Scanner » Even finds core files Suspicious

  • When scannig my wordpress-installation I was advised that due to high sensitivity the scan may also detect false positives. Interestingly enough, all files appear to be suspocious, for example wp-admin/widgets.php is considered an unknown file in the core directory. The files in the core directory of my site and in the latest wordpress verion I downloaded just now are 100% identical and in the identical location of both the downloaded WP-Package and my installation. Sorry, but in these cases the plugin should recognize the core files and not flag them. Other tools are way better here, although they costs someting.

    Thank you for your review.

    Can you please post md5 of the detected file and $wp_local value. The core files information retrieved directly from api.wordpress.org and plugin just compare content of scanned directories against received data.

    You right this is a core file thus we would like to investigate why this file had been detected.

    Thank you for your help.
