Frequently Asked Questions

Which vulnerabilities does Jetpack scan for?

Jetpack scans for known WordPress vulnerabilities in the plugins, mu-plugins, themes, and uploads directories. Additionally we scan in select files from the WordPress root directory (like wp-config.php), and other select files inside the wp-content directory where vulnerabilities are the most common on a WordPress website.

Once a scan has completed you will receive a notification if any threats have been found. These notifications will be send to you via email, and can be accessed via WP Admin or the dashboard.

Can I use Jetpack Scan to fix a site that is already infected?

Jetpack Protect (Scan) detects and prevents attacks, but is not designed to fully clean up sites infected before it was active. If your site has malware, take immediate action to clean it up and remove the malicious code.

To clean up your site, we suggest using a malware removal tool, or if possible restore from a backup taken before the infection. We recommend using Jetpack VaultPress Backup in conjunction with Jetpack Scan to secure your website.

Does Jetpack scan for exploits?

Jetpack scans for known exploits of WordPress, and WordPress plugins and themes. If there's a newer version of a theme or plugin that has patched a threat, you can update them with one click. If there isn't a newer version with a fix, we can help you to delete these from your site.

Does Jetpack protect from other plugin and theme vulnerabilities?

Jetpack also scans for vulnerabilities within other plugins and themes, and it keeps a history of all previous active threats to WordPress sites that it cross-references against. The plugins and mu-plugins directories are two of the directories that are actively scanned for vulnerabilities by Jetpack Scan.

How often does Jetpack scan your WordPress website for vulnerabilities and exploits?

Jetpack scans your site once per day, or when you trigger a manual scan.

Why do I need malware scanning for my site?

Security is important to consider for any site or online business, including WordPress. If your site is hacked it can cause serious damage to your income and your business' reputation.

Hackers can manipulate your website's data, steal information from you or your users (including passwords), install and execute malicious code, and even distribute the malicious code between your users.
