Since approx. 2 weeks now I receive warnings from the (WorPress-Sewcurity-) plugin Shield about 4 files:
The message says:
“Warning – Unrecognised WordPress Files(s) Detected.”
And the files in questions are the following:
As this happens for 2 domains running on 2 different servers (at 2 different providers) and
does not happen with more than 20 other websites I also run it’s quite confusing.
Could be a hacked website, but also a fault in the update process
or communication from server or WordPress/plugins.
Checking Google for information I do not receive any satisfying answer.
Therefore here’s my question to you, dear Shield team:
Are these files part of the latest WordPreess updates? And if yes, may I set Shield to “delete” these?
If these files are needed to run WordPress: Why hasn’t Shield received this information to update their database and avoid false information and panic amongst users?
Thank you very much in advance for a clarification.
