CORE.PHP file keeps being removed from my installation

Post by NStohr » Tue Jun 15, 2021 1:28 pm

I am having an issue where the core.php file keeps being deleted on a nightly basis, resulting in a 500 error until I replace the file. Below is an excerpt from the error logs. This problem just started a few days ago. I have tried patching everything to the latest version, but problem persists. Has anyone seen this before and can anyone provide a clue on where to start to fix this issue???

Is there any malware scanner running on the server that removes files? That is the only ting that comes to my mind.

To the best of my knowledge, from what I can see and also what I have been told, they are NOT running anything like that. That was my first thought as well.
