• A few hours looking on this plugin and API is setup but how to scan? It seems when the plugin was first installed it did a auto scan however the results are from combined cached JS files. how to rescan with cache turned off, been trying to get this to refresh the results but even though the cache plugin is disabled completely your plugin still says I have malware in a cached JS file. All Cache is removed and confirmed by view source code and gtmetrix.

    Hello @maltonge

    I am not sure if you intended to review the plugin or create a ticket?

    If you wanted to get supported from us, creating a ticket would have been better. A “review” is usually a message intended to give feedback about the experience with a product or service, but reading your message it seems that you are just asking a question.

    I am more active here [1] in the “Support Threads” page in case that you want to ask questions about the functionality of the plugin. I can tell you for sure that the implementation for the malware scanner is 100% correct. It has been tested multiple times by many people.

    Thank you for your review though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I too am looking for the scan button, or instructions as to how to perform a rescan after having attended to the issues thrown up by the auto scan that was performed after activating the plugin. If anyone knows how…please let me know! Thanks.

    Okay, I guess I could implement that button for the next version.

    Meanwhile, you can go to the plugin’ settings page and reset the sucuri-sitecheck.php file listed under the “Data Storage” section. The plugin uses this file to cache the result of the malware scan for up to 20 minutes, it is automatically reset but you can use that panel to clear the cache by yourself. There is another layer of cache on the server where the malware scanner is running, this one is kept alive for 48 hours unless you go here [1] and request a refresh.
