File Integrity Checker
The File Integrity Checker will compare your WordPress core files as well as your plugin and theme files to their original package. Its Files Comparison Viewer will show you the differences between any modified file and the original. You can also add your Premium themes and plugins to the File Integrity Checker.
The File Snapshot will show you which files were changed, added or deleted since the previous scan.
You can scan your blog for potential malware and virus using the built-in signatures. The scanning engine is compatible with the popular Linux Malware Detect LMD (whose anti-malware signatures are included) and with some ClamAV signatures as well. You can even write your own anti-malware signatures.
If a scan is interrupted before completion (e.g., crash, error etc), it will restart automatically where it left off.
If you are running our NinjaFirewall (WP or WP+ Edition) web application firewall plugin, you can use this option to integrate NinjaScanner into its menu.
Fast and Lightweight Scanner
NinjaScanner has strictly no impact on your database. It only uses it to store its configuration (less than 1Kb). It saves the scan data, report, logs etc on disk only, makes use of caching to save bandwidth and server resources. It also includes a Garbage Collector that will clean up its cache on a regular basis.
Another great NinjaScanner feature is that it runs in the background: start a scan, let it run and keep working on your blog as usual. You can even log out of the WordPress dashboard while a scanning process is running! You don’t have to wait patiently until the scan has finished. Additionally, a scan report can be sent to one or more email addresses.
NinjaScanner offers many advanced settings to finely tune it, such as exclusion filters, selection of the algorithm to use, a debugging log etc.
