Security is always a concern. You love your blog & want to protect it regardless whether someone finds it worth enough to hack or not
What about a hacker getting into your WordPress file system somehow? He can easily manipulate your theme files to add malicious codes. Think, he can easily add his own ad code like changing Adsense id or stuff a file with lots of spam links. That’s why your WordPress blog files need to be continuously monitored. With the help of WordPress File Monitor plugin you can just do that automatically & almost in real time.
The thing that I like about this WordPress plugin is its simple interface with all the necessary features. You can schedule automatic scans staring from only 1 minute interval gap. Enter your email address & you will get notification email when any change is detected in your WordPress files. Or if you want to keep it as a manual service, you can do that just by putting 0 in the “Scan Interval” box. And a quite useful feature is the option to exclude file paths. Suppose, you want your wp-content/uploads directory not to be monitored as it gets updated frequently. Moreover, if you use folder to store cache files, this feature can become quite handy & will save you from lots of unnecessary emails.
