  • Same thing here. I just deleted the plugin and its files.

    Hah. VaultPress told me the same thing.

    The “worms.php” file does not contain any malware. Quite the opposite, in fact. It contains a few checks with some known malware signatures, and it’s using those to check themes for that same malware. The theme-check.pot file contains some of those strings as well.

    This is a false positive. Theme Check is fine. Wordfence is incorrect.



    Thanks Otto!


    I use Wordfence on my website and I just got an email saying
    “File contains suspected malware URL: /home2/lukehay1/public_html/wp-content/themes/imbalance/single.php”

    Any idea how to resolve this?

    Many thanks

    lukehayden: Ask the people at Wordfence. This thread is for another plugin entirely.
