    I get these messages daily. Could you please help why I am getting these message daily? Is there any security issue?

    Code:
    Below are the recently upload scripts
    that contain code to send email.  You may wish to inspect them to ensure
    they are not sending out SPAM.
    
    /home/***/public_html/wp-login.php:402:
            if ( $message && !wp_mail( $user_email, wp_specialchars_decode( $title ),
    $message ) )
    /home/***/public_html/wp-login.php:403:            wp_die( __('The
    e-mail could not be sent.') . "<br />\n" . __('Possible reason: your host
    may have disabled the mail() function.')
    );
    /home/***/public_html/wp-login.php:404:
    
    
    

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Your system is alerting you to new files that have been uploaded to the server. If you upload new files to the server tomorrow, you'll get the email again. AFAIK, this runs once a day.

    Its important to read the email, and be alerted about it. If you expect the files to have been uploaded, by you or your clients, you can safely ignore the email. If the email says:

    ...for an example of a bad script, you want to know that.

    Is there any way to change the recipient of these mails? So I can redirect it to someone else?

    So, there is no security implications?

    Thanks for your help
