    This file contains a suspected malware URL listed on Google’s list of malware sites. Wordfence decodes base64 when scanning files so the URL may not be visible if you view this file. The URL is: xxttp:// – More info available at Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page.

    I’ve received the same warning today from WordFence and I’m a Pretty Link Pro user… I guess it’s an issue with WordFence?

    Nope it’s an issue with PrettyLinks code which is linking to a compromised site.

    Pretty Link uses that file as a reference for hits data. It does not actually link/connect to any of the sites listed in the file so there is no threat, however we’ll look into getting the file updated to remove the links that are triggering the alarm in WordFence.
