Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Suspicious files

    I installed https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-cerber/ and after running its site integrity check, it says that 4 pods files are suspicious in ‘/pods/ui/fields/’ folders:

    • media.php
    • plupload.php
    • select2.php
    • farbtastic.php

    Are these files obsolete from older versions of Pods or are they still official files?

    They are still official files, not sure why they are getting flagged though. Did it give any details?

    Yes, here is the message from WP Cerber:

    The scanner recognizes this file as “ownerless” or “not bundled” because it does not belong to any known part of the website and should not be here.

    It may remain after upgrading to a newer version of Pods – Custom Content Types and Fields. It also may be a piece of obfuscated malware. In a rare case it might be a part of a custom-made (bespoke) plugin or theme.

    Just following up here — these definitely aren’t a problem. There’s no obfuscation in the code in these areas and it seems like they are just getting flagged mistakenly (better safe than sorry though, in certain aspects).

    No problems, thank you!
