How often should I be getting File Change notifications? (1 post)

    I have a client site that is pretty large. Over the weekend I had a really weird thing happen where all of the usernames were reset to "admin" and passwords were reset to the same for all 6 users. I was able to clean it up in db and then installed this plugin (because it works well with InfiniteWP and my other security plugin was not). Since I suspected the site got hacked I turned on the File Change warnings and I've been getting a bunch of emails. I'm just curious as to what I should expect for the frequency of these alerts and are most of them just normal? Yesterday, for example, I got an email saying that this file was changed (among many others):


    Just need to know if I should be super concerned or if it's normal for files to be changed (mostly plugin files). Cheers!
