    Hi,

    Does this Antivirus scans only the template files?
    I did a manual scan and saw it checked my template files, but what about all the wordpress installation files etc? Aren't they being scanned as well?

    Thanks

    What you're talking nonsense?

    @maorb
    Yes, only active theme template files.

    Hello WordPress Managers -

    I have used the plugin on about 30 installations of WordPress we manage, and it is not "fishy". Instead, it has caught real viruses and helped reveal the code -- especially in Summer of 09 when a lot of WP sites were hit. Don't you think if the plugin was suspicious as wpsquadser alleges, it would be removed from the database here?

    It does sometimes find unknown code and mistakenly identify it as a Virus. I did a custom homepage with some AJAX calls for a slideshow, and it found those. But that's good. You just have to know what you're looking at.

    I use AntiVirus as well on many WordPress sites and agree with you WebFadds.
