I just started the topic “Malicious code?” but my post didn’t appear in the topic so I’m trying again.
I just recently started a blog and installed a theme called Ascetica.
I installed the theme directly through the dashboard in Appearance -> themes > install themes where I searched for it.
Now last night I read up on WordPress security etc. and stumbled upon a article that recommended you scanning the code for various male-ware. So today I did scanned with three different plugins called, Theme Authenticity Checker, Exploit Scanner and Theme Check and I got some troubling results with several lines of code being red flagged but I have no idea if the lines are dangerous and/or if/how I should fix it.
I would appreciate some guidance on what to do,
