Shield security scan alerted me today of an unrecognized file in WordPress [sic] core:
Modified: 7 months ago
Copyright (c) 2015 Paragon Initiative Enterprises
Random_* Compatibility Library
for using the new PHP 7 random_* API in PHP 5 projects
My options are to delete or ignore.
Is this a ClassicPress-specific file that Shield is identifying as not belonging in WordPress? I’m wholly unsure what to do with it (delete or ignore).
Any help appreciated.
Many thanks, Viktor, for the swift reply. My host just started a clamav virus scan (thank you for that suggestion) whose report may take a couple of hours. I’ll see what that reveals; if that file is not included, I’ll take your suggestion of renaming etc. I’ll let you know what happens just FYI.
