    I checked many time by replacing fresh copy of wordpress but problem remain same. Automatically .dev, default.php and some other files are been created unnecessarily.

    Can someone explain what is this. Is this virus.

    Exploit scanner also mark these files.

    How to to stop this creation.

    Simply reinstalling WordPress from a fresh copy is not an adequate response to this sort of thing. The cause of this may or may not technically be a virus, but your site has been hacked or compromised regardless. See FAQ My site was hacked for an appropriate response.
