Hello all. I recently installed the iThemes Security Plugin on my WP blogs (English & French versions). I selected the same settings on both blogs, and checked the File Change Detection option and the Split File Scanning sub-option. Since checking those options, I've been getting daily emails alerting me that files on one of my blogs have been changed. The alerts always concern the same blog. The alerts point to changes in a wide range of files. Sometimes only one file is mentionned, sometimes many. I don't know how to interpret these alerts. I can't see any notable changes on my blog. Below are a few examples. Can anyone help me figure out how to interpret these alerts which are rather nerve racking? Thanks in advance!

BTW: here's a link to the blog for which I keep getting alerts: http://catherinerondeau.com/photographe-montreal-blogue/
Here's the blog for which I don't get any alerts: http://catherinerondeau.com/photographer-montreal-blog/
As I mentionned, both are configured the same way.
