  • This folder should contain plugins, themes, your uploads and … Whats wrong with your folder? Do you see suspicious filer or folder on this folder?

    Hi Marcoslba,

    Someone is uploading files to your website so they are distributed. It means you are hacked. If the attacker is able to upload files then he has access to your website via FTP or he is exploiting a known vulnerability.

    I would recommend you to:

    1. Ensure that all plugins, themes and WordPress are the latest updated version.
    2. Change the FTP passwords.
    3. Once ready, delete the uploaded files.

    If the problem persists, then it must be something else which we can help you look into later…
