Support » Plugin: WP Fastest Cache » Works fine, but always false alarms by Wordfence

  • It seems to work fine.

    But Wordfence regularly complains about files changed on this plugin, seesm a hacked site.

    Not so. Seems the plugin is updated reularly without being officially updated, so it is reported as hacked site instead of in need of an update. Very annoying behaviour, wish the author behaved better instead of sneaky upgrades. Would get a 5 star otherwise.

    ow my god šŸ™‚ I am bored from such threads so I published a post about it. Please take a look at the following url.

    Sorry to bore you. Security alerts are boring but alas necessary since WordPress sites must be the most popular target for hackers nowadays.

    I did read the blog entry before writing the review. It was the main reason I gave it a bad review because of your policy of letting Wordfence generate modified file alerts instead of reporting that a new version is available.

    New version alerts are fine and no reason to worry and can be handled later.
    Modified file warnings on a site are not because it means being hacked and require immediate action.

    My god šŸ™‚ I have never seen such bad plugin. Wordfence check the files of plugin with the file of repository. This is so unnecessary. Why does a hacker need to change a file of plugin?

    By the way, Please stop using my plugin!

    Haha! Changing an executable file of a plugin is a great way to hack a site with malicious code injected!

    I am glad Wordfence checks that.

    then stop using WP Fastest Cache.

    Yes, WP Fastest Cache is being as fast as poosible removed now from my WordPress sites.

    Unsafe, a pain to use and your support is obvious ..
