    Well I used the plugin and it located 6 infected files that were cleaned.

    After forcing Rescan here https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/

    I now get more infected files (4 instead of 2 that I had before the cleaning process)

    Any help?

    Thank you

    It looks like only part of the infection was removed. I can see that the remaining threat must have been in one of the same files that you already fixed but it was not completely removed. I have just released a definition update that should find the remaining threat in that file. Please download the latest definition update and let me know if that finds and fixes the remaining infected file.

    Well I did a complete scan and removed 2 more files in the main theme php files

    Thanks, you saved me

    Great, Thanks for confirming that it worked.

    You should keep a close eye on your site for a few days to make sure it does not get reinfected. Maybe run another complete scan each day for a few more days tom ake sure it does not come back. You should talk to your hosting provider about tracking down the vulnerability that let them in and making the server more secure. The #1 cause of repeat infections on a shared hosting server is the lack of security between accounts. If they cannot prevent attacks like this than you should look for more secure hosting environment.

    Where do i download your file so I can fix my site?
