Hi,

Lately I got lots of spam users on a wordpress site that I haven't been using for a long time. Wordfence detected the following:

  • Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-themes/classic/phrases.js
    Type: File
  • Details: This file belongs to plugin "wpForo" version "1.9.9" and has been modified from the file that is distributed by WordPress.org for this version. Please use the link to see how the file has changed. If you have modified this file yourself, you can safely ignore this warning. If you see a lot of changed files in a plugin that have been made by the author, then try uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin to force an upgrade. Doing this is a workaround for plugin authors who don't manage their code correctly

Anything to wory about?

Hi @wp-zm,

If you have changed that files, and you know about the changes, you can leave it how it is.

If the changes has been done by wpForo you will need to do the following steps`

  1. Deactivate the plugin
  2. Delete the plugin
  3. Install it again

DO NOT UNINSTALL the plugin

 

Use this Topic to get rid of spam users problem.
