    Seems like you have some directories with permissions which do not allow our plugin to scan.

    We will see if we can try and add some more robust code to fix this so that whenever such a scenario such as the one you are seeing occurs in future, the plugin will skip the unreadable directory and proceed to the next.

    Hello @wpsolutions, that would be a great feature to add to the already great plugin.

    What if you included in the new feature a return message with a warning that X amount of files and/or folders could not be scanned. This would provide some information for the user to further investigate why those files and/or folders could not be scanned.

    Thank you for providing such a great security plugin.

    Kind regards

    it’d be nice if it could tell me what’s wrong like which directory’s privilige so I could fix it..

    Thanks to both of you for the suggestions.

    Initially for the next release we will apply a fix which will prevent issues such as fatal exceptions and we will ensure that the code will continue with the traversal of the directories.

    In another future release we may implement something which will highlight the directories which were not readable.

    Please upload the latest version.

    appreciated for excellent support and fix!
