Ok, I’m reposting this here since I got no response at the plugin forum.
Manual Scan button gets redirected to an Attack Site , and, no file change email notices since March.
I was using the plugin WordPress File Monitor Plus version 1.3. Since upgraded to 2.0. I just noticed that I have not received notice of file changes on my website since 3-13-12, even though I have made many changes to pages. When I click on the Manual Scan button, I get redirected to to an “Attack Site” warning page with a warning not to go there. The Attack Site url is http+://marketingvillage.ru/advertising/index.php (I added the + sign, which you can remove and proceed there at your own risk). I did not go there.
A year ago, I had my WordPress .htaccess file overwritten constantly by these same Russian hackers. Ultimately I was able to configure a setting at the server, Godaddy, to stop the file from being over written. In this WP File Monitor case, I don’t know what file is being hacked
or if there is a setting at Godaddy hosting control panel to stop this.
I deactivated and reactivated the plugin with no change. I also uninstalled and reinstalled it with no change.
