I just installed the Better WP Security plugin on two separate sites I am working on. Both sites have since sent out multiple emails stating there have been multiple file changes made – but I do not know what this means or how to tell if this is because of a hacker.
Here are some examples of the file change warnings:

If I cannot get some insight on what these file changes mean or why they are happening I will discontinue to use this plugin with the assumption it does not work and my sites have been hacked.
