“Why is it so important to have insight into file changes?” you might wonder. Let me explain:
The file changes feature shows you which files have been modified or added. It’s possible that your WordPress website might be affected by an injection due to a vulnerable plugin or your own actions. Sometimes, plugins or themes that were considered secure might get exploited later due to newly discovered vulnerabilities by hackers.
iThemes Security PRO NL blocks many threats, but it doesn’t always prevent plugins from writing files. Otherwise, certain plugins wouldn’t be able to function correctly.
If, at any point, a malicious file is found on your server, you won’t have to spend days searching through all the directories and files and examining the code. Instead, you can simply open the log files.
