AntiVirus

Description

AntiVirus for WordPress is a easy-to-use, safe tool to harden your WordPress site against exploits, malware and spam injections.
You can configure AntiVirus to perform an automated daily scan of your theme files and database tables. If the plugin happens to detect any suspicious code injections, it will send out a notification to a previously configured e-mail address.

In case your WordPress site has been hacked, AntiVirus will help you to become aware of the problem very quickly in order for you to take immediate action.

Features

  • Virus alert in the admin bar
  • Cleaning up after plugin removal
  • Translations into many languages​​
  • Daily scan with email notifications
  • Database tables and theme templates checks
  • WordPress 3.x ready: both visually and technically
  • Whitelist solution: Mark suspected cases as “no virus”
  • Manual check of template files with alerts on suspected cases
  • Optional: Google Safe Browsing for malware and phishing monitoring.

Will AntiVirus protect my site from being hacked?

Not literally “protect from”. The plugin’s purpose is to detect any “hack” that has already happened and enable you to take immediate action upon it.
