    Hello,

    Avast is detecting a trojan in my blog, I contacted my webhosting provider but they said they do not support removing virus and malwares.

    Blog - http://www.techblogx.com

    Details of virus -

    Name of the infection : JS:Frame-dl[Trj]

    Location : htt://www.techblogx.com/wp-includes/js/l10n.js?ver=20101110

    Can someone please tell me how to fix it?

    Thanks.

    Thanks a lot for the quick reply, this looks complicated. I know the exact file name and location so is there an easy way to get it fixed? I am scared...

    Thanks.

    There's really no easy way to fix getting hacked unless you pay/find an expert to help you. The links Esmi provided are all very good.

    Start going through:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_My_site_was_hacked

    Once you think you're clean use:

    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/

    to regularly scan your site. An incomplete clean-up can cause repeated reinfections.

    @esmi @Big Bagel -

    Thanks a lot for the reply guys, I found an easy way to fix it and was able to do it myself. Actually, I knew the name of the file which was infected and I replaced it with the original file found in the wordpress.zip that fixed the problem.

    Thanks again.

    I can only re-emphasise what Big Bagel said. If you don't completely clean your site, you could just have the same problem in a day or so. Just fixing the one obvious file is rarely enough.
