[Resolved] [Plugin: AntiVirus] AntiVirus may contain malicious executable code
After installing AntiVirus, I did a Wordfence Scan and it came up with this warning:
“This file may contain malicious executable code
File type: Not a core, theme or plugin file.
Issue first detected: 19 secs ago.
This file is a PHP executable file and contains an eval() function and base64() decoding function on the same line. This is a common technique used by hackers to hide and execute code. If you know about this file you can choose to ignore it to exclude it from future scans.”
What is base64 code doing in this file?
