    Clients updating their sites as advised found themselves locked out of admin even without having changed the wp-admin login url in Hide Backend.

    I had to delete the plugin via ftp and also (thanks to a forum post) the folder wp-content/uploads/ithemes-security; run WP-Cleanup; re-install the pre-iThemes version of the plugin, activate, deactivate and uninstall it; then install and activate the latest iThemes version 4.0.5 on every site….

    This used to be a 5* plugin. I use iThemes BackupBuddy all the time (Developer) and recommend it. I was looking to invest in the developer edition of iThemes Security Pro but this has seriously put me off.

    I can’t believe this issue did not flag in testing given the number of people affected by the update issue.
