Trojan in theme "Speed"? (11 posts)

    I just did a virus scan of my Linux server and it found Trojan.JS-75 in the "Speed" theme by milo317 / 3oneseven.com

    Has anyone else ran across this problem in this theme?
    Can I just delete this theme to keep from having problems?

    hi @thefluiddruid

    thank you for the alert, speed is updated to version 3.17.20,
    file jquery-ui-personalized-1.5.2.packed.js was never in use,
    however it is my fault & shouldn’t happen, sorry for that.
    just delete the file as it's unused in the theme.

    question is:
    how this unused file went into the theme, where the theme is hosted at dropbox.

    how did you install directly from wp theme installer?
    theme is only avail via dropbox, not via wp themes.

    best

    Milo,
    Thanks for your quick response.
    I downloaded the theme directly from the WP theme installer. I'm using BuddyPress, and found it by doing a search for BuddyPress enabled themes through the installer.

    Maybe an older version is still available that way?

    I have to wonder if anyone scans these themes for hidden malware (or something that will set off a scan like malware does)before the public can download them?

    Thanks again!!

    Strange, the Speed theme is NOT in the wp theme repository, so how can you install it via the WP theme installer?

    You do mean the appearance>>themes>>install themes within your wp install?

    Milo,
    I'm pretty sure that appearance>>themes>>install themes is how I installed it.
    It was a while back (10/30/2011), so I may be remembering wrong...

    @berolena your question is thesis related,
    while this is a speed theme topic, following @esmi tip is a good idea ;P
