It works if you read
By , for WP 4.3.1

Used the plugin to discover a few infected files not detected by other security plugins. It works great if you manage to identify the infected files in the loong list. Yes, a lot of the listed files are clean.

great little tool

only problem is the missing the hashes-3.6.php file :D

lots of false positives, but excellent tool
By , for WP 3.5.2

Whenever WP puts out a new version it would appear as though this plug-in needs to update the hashes, which can sometimes take a while. That being said, when the hashes are up to date it's fantastic at pointing out vulnerabilities. It seems like false positives are pretty common, but once you get the hang of it it's very helpful to recognize problems. Our blog has been hacked a few times in the past and this tool really helped to clean it up.
