  • not sure if my site is infected by malware. Sometimes when going to the site, my virus software pops JS:Blacole. Is there anyway to tell for sure. I’ve ran some online scanners, and even downloaded all my site files to my local PC and scanned them with 2 different anti-virus and get no issues. Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • According to the Sucuri site scanner your site is clean:

    I didn’t see anything obvious in your code, but you should update your anti-virus software and scan your computer


    Well, the best any scanner can give you is what it sees at a given time. It sounds like it could be conditional malware, only presenting itself if certain criteria are met. Desktop AV’s will do good for certain things, it’s likely picking up on a drive by download of some kind, unfortunately it’s likely not malicious in it of itself as presented in the file.

    It’s impractical to go through each file, but I would encourage you start by looking at your index.php, header.php, footer.php and function.php. All in your theme file, see if you see anything that shouldn’t be.
