This plugin is a fork of the WordPress File Monitor Plus plugin which has been last time updated 5 years ago. It was forked because there seems to be no further development on the existing plugin while it has critical security issues (old plugin creates a directory in uploads folder with 777 permissions allowing full write access to all users of the server; old plugin exposes the full list of website files & directories stored in a file in the uploads folder if Nginx is used as a web server). New WordPress File Monitor plugin has the following improvements:

  • Compatible with WordPress 4.7
  • Fixed mkdir 777 permissions security issue
  • Added instructions for securing data if using Nginx as a web server
  • Admin alert is displayed in a modal window
  • Fixed Multisite issues
  • Improved monitor admin interface
  • Added notes & hints to the Settings page
  • More to come, stay tuned
