    Hi @elraton14

    Unfortunately, according to the information you provided us now, we also don’t know who installed Wordfence on your website and we can’t know that for sure.

    What I suggest to do is to check the web server access log files and the database log files as well as they should have traces of the installation of the plugin files/tables. Also, think about other sites installed on your server that might be sharing the same database with different table prefixes?

    I know it will be a long investigation process, you might need to hire a professional security analyst to track this down if you feel such inspection is needed.

    Thanks.
