  • Resolved susansiow


    Hi BPS,


    I’ve received a virus alert email from my web host and below is the main content:

    ClamAV detected virus = [YARA.eval_post.UNOFFICIAL]’: /../wp-content/bps-backup/logs/

    Referring to this thread – , my site’s ‘Do Not Log POST Request Body Data’ option is ticked, so I am wondering what is causing the zip a virus concern.

    Please advise, thank you!

    The Security Log is a plain text file that logs blocked attacks against your website. So one or more of those logged attacks must have included something that ClamAV detected as suspicious or malicious. False positives are pretty common with all malware scanners unfortunately. That is a limitation of all malware scanners. You can disregard this false positive alert email.
