    Hi katiebuglove do you have a membership site? Or do you have more than one Admin in your site?

    The scan is letting you know that the .htaccess.backup was modified. Do you have the original backup downloaded into your computer or other backup location? Download the modified file which should only be a txt file. Open it and check to see if there are entries that look strange to you. If you have the original backup file then you can compare between both files.

    Can you please tell me where I can find this file in my blog folder?

    Thank you.

    Your backup file should be located in the following path /websitename/wp-content/aiowps_backups/

    I found them, thank you! and there are 3 from 8/23/14 (1.4k, 4.7kb and 734kb). I did a backup up of 3/5/15 and 3 were added to the aiowps backup folder with the same file sizes. Honestly, I really can’t tell if there’s something that shouldn’t be there or not. Can I post the contents or would that display sensitive info?

    And why would someone want to hack my blog? It’s not much more than pictures of my dogs, some flowers, etc.

    To answer the question from your first post, I am the only admin. I guess it’s a membership site.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi katiebuglove use the following URL to check and scanned your website to find out if you have been hacked.

    Also the following IP Address: 204.12.207.58 from above was probably added to your .htaccess file. That is why you are receiving a notice that the .htaccess file was changed.

    If you are concerned about your website you can always enable the following feature in the plugin site-scanners.com.

    I did the first link you suggested and although everything else looked good, there was this:

    Website Errors Detected Critical Contact your Hosting Provider

    but it didn’t explain what it was. How can I contact my web host with just this?

    But my main question is:

    I beefed up the security in my AIOWPS since all this began happening (I didn’t realize there was so much and went from a rating of 230 to 410) which of course changed the backup files. So, the question is, could doing all this change the the wp-config file or the htaccess file or anything else which generates the emails from AIOWPS?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi, I just carried out a test myself with your URL above. This is the error that it detects. Can you get in contact with your host and let them know about the following error.

    System Details:
    Running on: ATS/5.0.1
    Unable to properly scan your site. Site returning error (40x): HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

    Your site is also clean, it did not find anything wrong except the error mentioned above.

    In regards to your question…

    So, the question is, could doing all this change the the wp-config file or the htaccess file or anything else which generates the emails from AIOWPS?

    Yes the file size would change and it would also trigger the message you received.

    So, except for getting in touch with my web host, I’m probably good? FYI, since I beefed up AIOWPS, I haven’t had any more funny stuff…!

    Thanks again for your help, it was perfect!!

    Thank you

    PS Enjoy the plugin

    I’m on the phone right now with web host, I don’t want to close the thread until I get their answer to this and then I will.

    I LOVE this plugin!!!

    The web host customer service rep thinks that this is e404, and I have one so he thinks I am good….

    Is this what the error is referring to?
