    I navigated to my wordpress site with firefox and was told by AVG antivirus that it contained a threat. The filename was as follows
    http://www.stephenmassey.net/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/spellchecker/includes/twitter-widget.php
    http://www.stephenmassey.net is my web address. I have recently installed jetpack.???????? Can you help?

    has nothing to do with jetpack

    run your site through the scanner here and it will give you locations infected

    Thank you for your advice Samuel B and Esmi.
    I was able to upload a saved back up of the site and also found a stranger had appeared as an admin so I deleted him and changed my password and log in name etc
