    I started receiving all these weird messages from a few of the websites I maintain like “Howdy! Your site at http://imagesinafricasafaris.com has been updated automatically to WordPress 3.8.1.”

    This totally puzzled me.  And then I got a message from a site I had BPS pro installed and panic set in.  Holy crap!

    Sure enough BPS did it’s job and quarantined a pile of files.  To my surprise the website was still functional (relief).

    I hope I did the right thing.   I checked all files and did a restore.  Then I reset the db to clear the messages.

    I guess next time I better:

    /** Disable All Automatic Updates */
    define( 'AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED', true );
    /** That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    I hope others had the same good luck as mine.

    If you have at least BPS Pro version 7.7 installed then WordPress files would not be quarantined when a WordPress automatic update occurs.  As of BPS Pro 7.7 – ARQ Automation was added.  The current version of BPS Pro is 8.2.  Please upgrade BPS Pro on your site if you have an older version installed.
