@sucurisecurity killed my wordpress site (twice)

w00t w00t! mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class SucuriScanSiteCheck

Yesterday Sucuri for WordPress was updated to 1.7.18, my website immediatly went offline. I got notified about it by Jetpack.
Problem: I cannot deactivate the Sucuri plugin via the WordPress dash since the site is down and I can’t login 🙂
Solution: Logon via FTP and rename the Sucuri plugin directory to .old. My site went back up immediatly.

I tried to revert to my latest backup, which worked, and Sucuri got automaticly updated to version 1.7.19. My website went down again .. and I could start all over again, disabling the plugin over FTP

For now I leave the plugin as is. Hopefully Sucuri comes with a solution soon. I’ll wait ..

Update: after posting this to Twitter Sucuri immediately contacted me and offered to provide a solution. As we speak we are working together to get this solved. Thumbs up for a company like that.

Update2: it’s working again, but the source of the troubles is yet to be determined.
