Use of TimeThumb Script?

    Hi there,

    I’ve installed the Sucuri plugin on a site using Akita. One of the “one-click hardening’ functions says:

    “This option blocks direct PHP access to any file inside wp-content. Warn: Do not use it if your site uses timthumb or similar (insecure) scripts. If something breaks, just remove the .htaccess from wp-content.”

    So here just to double check before I hit the green go button.

    Cheers:)

    Hello,

    Nope, none of our themes have TimThumb in them. Our themes only use WordPress built-in cropping and image size management.

    Dang – Jason – This has occurred before for me. I just used Sucuri’s wp-content hardening option as advised above and now the visual editor has disappeared. Refer to screen shot. Other than clearing from HTaccess any suggestions here.

    Hi – I just deleted the .htaccess file that Sucuri’s plugin generated/added to the wp_content folder and all back to normal.
