  • A file hash is a string that computed to uniquely identify the contents of a file. It is used to determine if the file has been changed. When the hash computed through examination of the file has changed, the file has changed.

    The plugin should report all changes. Including those you make at its direction.

    The idea is that if it tells you something changed that you didn’t touch you know you have a problem.

    In this case, the plugin works as designed.

    Ah right ok. That kinda maks sense.

    Does WordPress itself make any automatic changes to any files? I just want to make sure that if I don’t change a file but I receive an email from the plugin (telling me something has changed) then its definitely an attack of some sort and it needs my attention.
