[pmwiki-users] My Host Claims there's a problem with SiteAdmin.Blocklist-MoinMaster

This morning I received a note (see below) from my webhost, claiming that
contains something suspicious, and they have disabled it.

(The contents of that file are below.)

I updated to the current stable pmwiki version yesterday morning.

My first suspicion is that their software is being overly-cautious.

As far as I know, nothing on my computer remembers my FTP passwords, 
although given how "helpful" some programs are, I can't guarantee it, 
so, yes, I'll change the FTP and CPanel passwords to be safe.

The FTP attributes of the files in wiki.d vary. Most are 0664 
(-rw-rw-r--). The suspect file is now 0000.

I did not get the note for the other sites on the same server.

Searching pmwiki.org for moinmoin shows nothing about security or block 


Has anyone had this problem before?

What is the best way to reactivate the protection I had from MoinMaster, 
or should I just disable it (and how)?

Why do my two other subsites have different dates for the same page? 
Their attributes are both 0664 (-rw-rw-r--).

Why is the file for one of the subsites only 2k and the others over 60?
