Audit logs for Defender

What do the audit logs log? I see logs of plugin updates, etc. But I updated all User's/Editors/Admin passwords and it does not show me that I did that.

Should we install better audit log like https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-security-audit-log/

thanks! Like Defender so far!!!

    May I ask another defender question in the string or should I open a new one?

    My question is for non-developers or non-engineers, how are people supposed to react responsibly two reports we get from defender like this without doing more damage than just leaving them. Basically a non-technical person would not have any clue on what these files do or do not do or if they're appropriate to have:

    Hi Mike,

    When there are reports like this it usually means that users knows what's going on and how did those changes or files got added there as, if it's unclear about steps needed we can help with that.

    Now, I'm not sure if you need actual assistance with this or you're just asking this as general question, if you do need more help it would be best starting new thread since question is not related to original one and I was about to move this thread to features and feedback section :slight_smile:

    You can start a new thread here:
