  • Can you provide more details? There’s not enough information to guess why this is happening.

    I removed W3 Total Cache/ and then a scan came up clean.

    Here is the contact. – I’m not able to duplicate this. Nor am I convinced of the accuracy of this service.

    Frederick, I have access to the full paid version of the scanner. If you want I can privately email you a jpeg snip of the scan. First thing that came to mind, that’s odd, is this scan is misinterpreting cached files as malware? Unless someone has compromised the plugin and other plugins in this Network Solutions fiasco, or it could be a flaw in their scanner.

    I doubt it’s your plugin.

    Just emailed you a link via your contact so you can run the full scan.

    Okay after some more nose to the grindstone I think it may be a NS thing.


    Right, there’s no difference from the perspective of a security/virus/malware scanner between a cached page a normal WordPress page except for the headers.

    Would you please mark this topic as resolved? You can still post any update afterwards.
