"Suspicious (phpinfo)" in wp-admin file (4 posts)

    Hi Guys

    I should say at the outset that i am not very technical so am hoping someone can give me a simple-ish answer to this.

    My site(s) have been hacked and my hosting provider has reported the following

    mysite.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ssh2.php: Suspicious(phpinfo): phpinfo() streams

    I have no idea what this file is meant to look like so don't know what I should be looking for?

    Would be VERY grateful for any help.

    why not just replace the file with one from zip - download link at top of this page

    Thanks Samuel for such a speedy reply!

    I just had a quick look and the new zipped version of this file is exactly the same size as the one that "may have been hacked". Does that suggest that its unlikely to have actually been hacked?

    if it's still the same it's unlikely it is hacked
