Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » garbage characters ? malicious code

  • Hi,

    After my site was hacked I deleted the directory and reinstalled using a month prior backup.

    Worddefence security scan shows this.

    Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/languages/

    I see garbage characters, which are indicative of malicious code.

    This file belongs to plugin “WordPress SEO” version “” and has been modified from the file that is distributed by for this version. Please use the link to see how the file has changed


    Is it correct that this is not in the WordPress SEO new version?
