    WP Version 3.3 / ultimate-security-checker v2.7.2

    When running USC, I get the result:

    "Some of blog core files have been changed. View Report."

    and when I view the report I get the result:

    "Your blog core files check results:
    No code changes found in your blog core files!"

    How can I know which is correct?

    This is happening to me as well - did anyone have a fix for this?

    Kind regards,

    The problem is occurring because the plugin has not been updated since the last WP update, and thus the core files are not recognized properly. When the developer releases a new version it should recognize that the core files are unmodified.

    Vezado, this is impossible. The author bsndev states very clearly and as the number one point on the plugin page:

    #1 SECURITY PLUGIN for WordPress! We're the only plugin that gets updated regularly to protect against the latest threats! Why trust your work to a plugin which hasn't been updated in months or years?

    I get your point and i've been tempted to make a similar remark for his claims, but ultimately he's providing a free plugin for all us that works very well. He's occasionally a bit behind the WP updates, but not months or years thankfully.

    If the plugin notes that core files have been modified but can't specify which, you know it is because the plugin needs updating and the warning can be ignored.

    @flashbuddy - It's not impossible just because the plugin developer wrote that on the description... Like Vezado says it really is almost always up to date - like right now.
