    Recently needed to clean a database due to redirect malware live.traffic redirects. Installed Wordfence and noticed the same malware was found in the super cache file path found by Wordfence after database cleaning. I opened Super Cache and deleted cache. Went back to Wordfence and tried to delete but now Wordfence reported fiel as missing. I then Googled Super Cache and malware only to find that millions of sites have been effected by the malware and that I should use the latest version. I verified that I a using latest version. Next and last step was to disable and remove this plugin.

    I think your site is infected by malware and using the cache directory to put it’s payload, OR, WP Super Cache is simply caching pages on your site that are infected with malware.

    Unfortunately the plugin doesn’t know if a page has malware on it or not.
