wp-config file disappeared

On one of my client sites I just noticed that the main wp-config file now looks like the sample wp-config file where it sales enter username here, password, etc. What can cause a wp-config file to disappear like that?

    Hi cornelius_butler,

    This is really weird and should not happen. I've not faced any issue like this before. Even when WordPress core is updated, "wp-config.php" file is not modified.

    Just to confirm that your site is not compromised, can you please reconfigure the "wp-config.php" file and make your site secure with our Defender plugin?

    Then monitor your site for a few days. I believe, these won't happen again.

    Please let us know if it ever happens again. We will be glad to assist further.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
