The Security Check Pro info module shows all as ok. However I find that I have 43 rogue articles in the root of my site authored by "none" between January 4 and 22. Where could the vulnerability be, and how can I monitor this?

Hi Margaret,

Is the malware scanner configured to analyze the entire filesystem (Global configuration -> Malware scan tab -> Timeline = any date) and to look also for suspicious patterns (Global configuration -> Malware scan tab -> Deep scan = enabled)?

Does the site have user interaction (for instance, allows user's registration) or is an "static" page? I ask you this because for sites with low user interaction I developed the "lock tables" feature. This prevents unauthorized changes in database.

Regards,
Jose

Yes, the Malware scanner is set to scan Anytime, and Deep scan.

There is no registration required, though some audio files can be downloaded, and the owner is considering using a chat component for counseling purposes.

The Lock Tables feature is enabled, I'm not sure whether I need to add further tables?

Regards,

Margaret

Hi Margaret,

The "Lock tables" feature must be enabled from main panel:



With this feature no articles should be added even if there is a backddor or someone has acees to the database. Please, check if it's enabled; if so and you get more messages I fear I would have to look for malware in the site, but this have a fee.

Regards,
Jose

Thank you Jose.
I locked tables, and there have been no rogue articles in the two days since.
Kind regards,
Margaret
