Support » Theme: WP FanZone » Fanzone theme malware

  • I’m working on a website that I have taken over from someone else…
    The updates I have done so far is the WordPress version and the theme (FanZone) version. I have added photos and updated other information on the site. the problem is now, everytime either someone gets on the site or I do we get a malware message.
    I found an anti malware plugin and used it it came up with the error of

    …/wordpress1/wp-content/themes/arras-theme/library/timthumb.php

    I do not have all the original images that were uploaded to the site (http://erniefrancisjrracing.com). I ran the fix once it was completed but I still get the malware message.

    Can someone help?

  • this theme does not have a theme folder called arras-theme that u are suggesting. It has wp-fanzone. Sounds like you were infected independently of this theme.

    And the infection is to a typical, well known culprit: timthumb.php. Like all of us you should never use that plugin. Every bad person looks for that php file as their attack entry. Just check your server logs — gotta be like 100 attempts searching for that file every hour.

    Thanks for the info…still kinda of new to this. Where would I go to fix this? I have never used that plugin, I did download an update to the theme, could that have it? and where would I locate it in order to fix it?

    I get the same error when trying to get to the admin part of the site as well
