    Hi there,

    I’m not sure that Jetpack could have caused that issue. Jetpack is a very safe and secure plugin. It even protects sites from cyber attacks like the one you’re describing.

    Can you please let me know more about that path you shared? I don’t understand how it is related to the issue.
