Rank Math plugin hacked

  • Resolved Networking Plus

    All of a sudden I am receiving 404 monitor notices about nefarious php files that are clearly hackers files and they are showing up in my site https://georgegoldbergartsit.com. Has the Rank Math plugin been hacked?

    I’m getting a bunch of 404 monitor hits with hack php files and they are all congregating in the database at 983jv554x6_rank_math_404_logs and 983jv554x6_rank_math_sc_analytics with filenames like hvj1/f6r7b.php, fQKxe30002db83d7753YRDI8739b0.top, v6ew/9i174q.php and a bunch more.

    What’s this all about???

    and another 60 or so more, WTF????????


    Thanks a lot for your query and we are so sorry about the trouble this must have caused.

    We already responded to your queries on Facebook.

    I thought this was already answered? Your website was hacked like others showing the same hacked content your website WAS showing.

    Since your website was fixed somehow, those hacked pages turned into 404s.

    Those 404s were picked by Rank Math since we have an inbuilt 404 monitor in the plugin.

    Because those filenames were added to the 404 monitor – you are now seeing them in the database.

    Rank Math is sound and secure. It is vetted by the capable people at WordPress.org and a hacked or hackable plugin never makes its way into the WordPress.org repository.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Oh, I forgot to mention.

    If the filenames are in rank_math_sc_analytics, that means it must be in your Google Search Console as well.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.


    Since we did not hear back from you for 15 days, we are assuming that you found the solution. We are closing this support ticket.

    If you still need assistance or any other help, please feel free to open a new support ticket, and we will be more than happy to assist.

    Thank you.
