    Hello BPS,

    Recently BPS quarantined on one of a file “cookie.txt”
    I open the file and the content is as below:-

    # Netscape HTTP Cookie File
    # This file was generated by libcurl! Edit at your own risk.	TRUE	/	FALSE	1495329439	NID	91=lOhCT3u36InBuEKF7ckO2_Jj9WmPZjPhD01xMGPcKYGBcKEpYurYsMIO-vG5G_1YQF-d2J3cSj7MYrVpnDUYizAMudOUexzY0mHL_lySbKKwEJxK8aLd4Tkz4jm8_zNHpt9lMn46hDjxfEE

    Is it some sort like hacking things ? Or is it normal and I should restore it back ?

    Looking forward for your reply.

    The file does not contain hacker code.  Here are some links below that explain what the file is.  I’m not really sure what autogenerated that file, but most likely something changed on your server.  Check with your web host and see what they think.

    Sorry to jump into this thread… i am seeing the same file generated on one of my domains, i believe it is the “Rankie” plugin which tracks keyword position. However i am seeing this php warning, wonder what i can do to get rid of it since it is generating constantly…

    @ Mike I – Go to AutoRestore > Add|Exclude Other Folders & Files > Remove Added Folders|Files Search > enter:  cookie for the search term > remove the cookie file from Added Files.  The Add Folders & Files tool should be used for additional files that you DO want AutoRestore to check and monitor.  You DON’T want AutoRestore to check the cookie file.  Unfortunately, you cannot exclude randomly named files from being checked by AutoRestore since that would completely negate AutoRestore’s effectiveness.  Example:  hacker-file-009.php, hacker-file-008.php, etc etc etc.
