    Hey Daniel,

    Something just isn’t right with your WordPress site. When a WP site gets hacked, they put these files in a random folder. We do not have these files in our IWP Client Plugin by default. Could you please FTP in or log into your cPanel account of your WordPress site installed server and delete the wp-content/plugins/iwp-client folder.

    Now, use this link and download the current version of IWP Client Plugin and upload it to your plugins folder.

    Also, do check your other folders for these find of files and remove them from your server.

    Feel free to write to us at help@infinitewp.com if you need any further assistance.
