This Anti-Malware scanner searches for Malware, Viruses, and other security threats and vulnerabilities on your server and it helps you fix them.
While Wordfence seems to be focused primarily on blocks and streamlines, this is the "Malwarebytes" of WordPress. It quickly identified dangerous areas of the site during a recent multi-user attack on my site. It also lets you fix in real time, while it is scanning! Time is off the essence during attacks so this is really helpful.
Thank you Eli for this amazing plugin. Tried several things and nothing was working to remove a horrible malicious php script that infected every php file in wordpress files and theme files. Cleaning this was a truly impossible task, and a couple plugins I tried could not do it. I cannot say enough about how well this plug in worked. Extremely easy to use and understand. Did not mess anything up in the process. Simple & effective.FIVE STARS PLUS.
Not sure what's going on but the scan skipped a about a third of the files and the Brute-force Protection Not Installed Checking for session compatability ... Wait... wheel is steady spinning
.. and fixed. This back door script was easily eliminated.
I am grateful
I just recently downloaded Eli's plugin to clean an ongoing issue I've been having (and that my host was unable or unwilling to fix). Eli's plugin quickly analyzed my site and fixed multiple issues (that I didn't even know existed!), however it did create a conflict with my server host (500 internal server error). Since I was unable to figure out how to correct this issue, I emailed Eli direct and he quickly responded (within 1 hour!), and stated he would dig into the issue so he can help me, as well as ensure his plugin would not exhibit the same issue for other users.
Eli quickly corrected my issue (within 24 hours), and in doing so, further strengthened his tool for all of you! I will definitely be donating to his cause -- this plugin is a very good tool, but more importantly, it's backed by a GREAT developer. Cheers! Joe
Great plugin. Helped me in getting rid of malicious code which my site got infected because of Revolution Slider bug.
I can't say enough nice things about this plugin. When I got word that my site was infected with malware, I didn't know what to do. Came across this plugin, it was easy as pie to install, run and then auto-clean everything.
After cleaning, I even used a third party tool to verify that it was actually cleaned and the site is perfectly fine.
A+++++ GREAT work!
Works as advertised! Simple to use and very efficient!
This plugin saved the day. A poorly-written plugin opened a backdoor on one of our sites. This tool was an amazing time saver. I will be using it regularly (and donating to the cause to show my appreciation and support!)
Unlike some other wp security plugins, it just worked.
I would just change that ugly icon in wp backend
