    wp-admin/updatecode.json, by sofiac1


    I just started using the WordFence security plugin on my site.
    Today´s scan resulted in the following:

    Unknown file in WordPress core: wp-admin/updatecode.json
    Filename: wp-admin/updatecode.json
    File Type: Core
    Issue First Detected: 55 mins ago.
    Severity: Warning
    Status New
    This file is in a WordPress core location but is not distributed with this version of WordPress. This is usually due to it being left over from a previous WordPress update, but it may also have been added by another plugin or a malicious file added by an attacker.
    I am using the most recent WP version: 4.9.1

    Please advise what action to take. Thank you in advance for your help!
