Support » Fixing WordPress » Malware Attack

  • I have been trying to combat an apparent Malware attack that google has flagged me on. I have two plugins, an antivirus for WP as well as an exploit searcher, and they find nothing.

    I seriously have tried everything I know how to do and cannot solve the problem. Can anyone advise me?

    I would say I am a medium, not advanced person, and am generally new to wordpress. This has already been a harrowing experience.

    I suggest using the links here to contact Google directly and work things out. But first – go over your entire site and look for hacks.

    That link you’ve provided is not a WordPress blog. It eventually sends you /wordpress/ which works.

    Of the 85 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 5
    page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed
    without user consent.

    What did you do to the HTML output? The HTML I downloaded using curl is a complete unreadable mess. Makes it difficult to see why Google doesn’t like your site.

    which html? mine?

    The code on my index page, for instance is so basic, and has no malware, yet is flagged.

    I meant the HTML code in your /wordpress/ URL.

    Your /wordpress URL gets 301 Moved Permanently redirected to the /wordpress/ URL. That’s probably why Google doesn’t flag.

    Give this a look

    You may just need to request Google to re-review your site for malware.

    yeah well.. google is claiming the last time malware was found was 10-29, but I have submitted for review twice since then, and no changes so far.

    strange enough, after my last review I guess google saw fit to remove the warning. I really haven’t made many changes! Makes me wonder if people are sometimes reporting just to mess with sites.
