    I don’t think it needs to be downloaded as above as it’s executed on the web server when it’s connecting to your WordPress website.

    Like you say it would be a hacker looking for the information in that file like gaining access to your database.

    With plugins the database connection would already be set up and if the plugin had access to this file then the programmer or hacker would have you details so I wouldn’t think plugins would need to access or download this file.
