    This screenshot shows how this file is modified:

    I updated both Wordfence and W3TC to latest version lately. Also, my site is under attack lately as wordfence locks out around 30 people almost every day that try to log in as admin.

    So, I’m not sure if that modification is normal, or made by a hacker.

    Please help.

    Thank you!!!
