Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Many files in WP-Includes flagged

  • Resolved Bliss7


    I am getting all these “Issues” by WordFence regarding old wp-includes files that it thinks should be deleted.

    These are:
    1) thumbs.db (found in several folders)
    2) class-IXR.php.bkup
    3) class-IXR.php.rej

    So it seems these files are not in the latest WordPress version, but I am a little apprehensive about deleting them. What if something goes wrong later?

    Can anyone clarify is it safe to delete these files?

  • Hey @bliss7,

    If you’d like to share the contents of the files in a we can take a look to see if they’re malicious. But I think it would be just fine to delete them as long as you make a backup before doing so.

    Please let me know how it goes.



    Hey @bliss7,

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’ve gone ahead and marked this thread as resolved.

    Please feel free to open another thread if you’re still having issues with Wordfence.
