Odd Files Appearing On Wordpress Sites - Keep?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that several of my client's websites a new file is being added called "readme.a pile of number.html, not once but several times.




Do I keep it?


Also, do you keep the config.sample readme.html files from the install? I think that the config file was often the one that was hacked, so I remove mine.


Also, saw one today that seemed odd...index.wpsaved.php. Is that due to a theme update or something else and again, do I keep it on the server?


I back up everything locally, regardless.
