    I logged into my WP dashboard this morning after not logging in for a couple of weeks and the WP Better Security plugin informed me that some files had been modified yesterday. The site seems fine. Here is the log, should I be worried? I have checked the sites images and they don't seem to have changed that I can tell.
    Thanks for your help and time.

    James :)

    Also, there has been a lot of database errors while trying to connect to the site lately and the other day whilst entering the url to search for the site, I got an SSL error message from Google saying the site was untrustworthy. The message vanished the following day, contacted host provider and they said they couldn't see a problem.

    If anyone has any idea of what has happened to my site, I would be very grateful for your knowledge,

    wp better security will notify you of any changes. So if you have a plug in that updates like a cache then you will get used to seeing updates all the time.

    If its a jpg just check to see it looks like it should

    Hey Duffers.

    I do have a cache plugin yes, however it's set to be used manually and since I haven't logged into my site's dashboard for a bit, it can't be that. jpgs look fine too. Weird.

    Thanks though mate :)

    open up your index.php file and see if there is ..... Eval with a bunch of numbers and letters at the top. if so you need to delete that code or upload your backup index.php file. then make sure you chmod the file to 444 so it doesnt get re infected. you may need to check your other files such as function.php...wordfence plugin is a good tool. Hopes this helps.
