Project security checks for wordpress sites

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Due to the compromise of a centrally hosted wordpress installation (not one of ours) I have set up some further checks for file modification using a HIDS script fcheck. Each project on scarab which has a wordpress install is now checked for file integrity using md5sum, permission changes and CRC comparison. If you maintain a wordpress installation you may receive emails from fcheck when an ALERT is triggered. Please, make sure you read this email as it will only alert once for each change.

I have also performed some house cleaning on the WPMU site.
