Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Unknown WordPress core version: 5.2.2 (after updating from 5.2.1)

  • Resolved wornways


    I did a scan with Wordfence, and the only issues indicated was that a couple of plugins should be updated and that WordPress should be updated from WordPress 5.2.1 to 5.2.2. so I went ahead and updated the blog and plugins.

    I did a scan right after and now I’m seeing this “issue”:

    Unknown WordPress core version: 5.2.2
    Type: Unknown Core File

    Issue Found June 18, 2019 1:38 pm

    Is this anything to be concerned about or is it that Wordfence does not yet know what the 5.2.2 all the 5.2.2 files should look like?

    I’m guessing we will have another update of Wordfence soon πŸ˜‰



    I can confirm that too – got a WordFence notification:

    An update is available for WordPress (v5.2.2)

    but my dashboard shows, that I#ve installed WP 5.2.2–de_DE



    This issue self-resolved.

    Upon further investigation, I discovered that WordFence needs a little time to reindex the blog and its core files after an upgrade.

    So I jumped the gun by running a scan just after upgrading WordPress to 5.2.2.

    Thanks for listening,
