• Bottom line: Malcare is a uniquely good plugin for protecting and removing malware, bundled with exceptional support and other services without additional upcharges.

    I looked at three popular malware WordPress protection plugins. Each of these plugins offered a limited free scan to entice users to purchase its full product. Only MalCare’s free scan indicated more issues than an obvious old plugin that may be malicious.

    After purchasing MalCare’s single-site basic service, their advanced scan listed and removed many issues. One issue, however, kept recurring with every scan after that—a file called ./.cache.php. I see this file referenced as malicious in the WordPress support topics but without a solid answer on how to remove it. I filed a tech support issue with MalCare, and within 24 hours, the tech found and removed this recurring file from my WordPress chron job.

    Thank you MalCare team.
