[resolved] 3337 characters of unexpected output during activation (2 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    Wordfence version: 3.2.7

    Plugins I have installed:
    Exploit Scanner
    Theme Authenticity Checker (TAC)
    TimThumb Vulnerability Scanner

    After activating Wordfence on my localhost server I got following message

    The plugin generated 3337 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

    You have marked THIS support topic as resolved but the issue still exists.

    Please let me know what to do to get rid of that message.

    Thanks for your report.

    I've had several reports of this issue as you know. So what I've done today is I've included code in the next version of Wordfence which will go out later today that captures the error being generated and will display it as soon as the plugin is activated. Please upgrade when you see the new version go out today and let me know what the actual error is.

    I'm resolving this issue for now and please open a new issue once you upgrade and have the actual error. The reason I'm asking you to do this is because you may receive a different error to someone else, so I'd like to separate the issues.
