    I have a website that uses a wordpress theme called Avenue bought from themeforrest ... it keeps getting repeatedly infected with malware .. is et up a sub domain with this address http://nicfitness.testedoutdoors.com/wp/ which is repeatedly showing as having malware in google chrome

    This is getting annoying lol .. a friend of mine who is a developer told me to remove the timthumb.pho file and a few other js files and replace them with new versions .. when they were deleted the site appeared fine .. as soon as the new fresh versions were uploaded it was pretty much infected again within 10 minutes ... im at a loss to solve this as im not a developer and im hoping someone can help???

    thanks in advance

  2. I just ran your site through the sucuri scanner - http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/nicfitness.testedoutdoors.com/wp/
    and it seems fine.
    If your site keeps getting infected, you may want to move host. It's possible that their server is infected. Have you spoken to them about this?

    You should also make sure that you have very strong passwords. I would change the WP admin, FTP and database passwords.

    This free book http://build.codepoet.com/2012/07/10/locking-down-wordpress/
    has some great tips on how to lock down your site.

    Alternatively, you could also hire the folks at sucuri.net.

    <p>I just went to your site to try and check it out, (automated scanners are not 100% fool-proof) but your site appears to be broken at the moment so it's really hard to determine what the issue might be.
    <p>Work your way through these resources and follow all instructions to completely clean your site or you may be hacked again.
