  • Resolved shayeryan


    Thanks for the great plugin! I was able to remove or repair a bunch of infected files. My only issue is the infection keeps coming back. I will run a full scan and repair/delete infected files. Then a day or two later, I’ll get an email that there is more infected files. This has been going on for two weeks. Is there a way to completely remove the infection?

    There must be some vulnerability left in your site somewhere. I’d suggest updating your theme and plug-ins. Disable any plug-ins (or delete entirely) that are not needed. Change users passwords.

    Here are a lot of good tips straight from WordPress on hardening a site:


    Thanks Brian, I’ll give that a try. Since I created this post I haven’t seen any new infections. Thanks again for the great plugin. Good to know there are coders out there doing the good work.
