    Hi,

    I recently got an email from Wordfence saying that Wordfence has been switched off by a user called “” on 127.0.0.1 which is a very worrying message.

    I logged in to WordPress and saw that Wordfence was still active and i couldnt see any malicious logins. I have done a scan and seen a couple of files which I would query but is this a known problem? My Site host has also run a malware and virus scan and we cant see anything suspicious at this stage.

    What are the scenarios which might lead to this message being generated?

    Thanks,

    WR

    Hey @wingrider,

    Are you able to share the URL?

    Which file changes concern you? Can you please share them and their contents in a pastebin.com so we can take a look to make sure they aren’t malicious?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Gerroald

    Hey @wingrider,

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’ve gone ahead and marked this thread as resolved.

    Please feel free to open another thread if you’re still having issues with Wordfence.

    Thanks,

    Gerroald
