Malware Virus are one of the scariest things you could get as a webmaster (there are others worse than this), it stops visitors from coming into your website as Google blocks them and visitors drop and the rest drops too. One of my websites was hit badly last time that Google suspended my adwords account and had a Malware Virus warning to those who tried to load our website.
At first, this malware virus infected certain pages so I went ahead and checked and it seemed clean. I also installed sucuri scanner which did the malware viruses scan and declared our website clean. I requested for a review and the approved, our website went back to normal. After a few weeks, the worse happened, the malware virus infected the homepage which resulted to our website being branded as an attack site and stopped users from entering our website.
I never knew how to resolve this before, and after countless hours of researching and reading many different support forums and blog posts about it, I tried the following solution:
Solution to Malware Virus on WordPress Clean up
- I installed all types of malware virus scan plugins in WordPress (there are a lot of free virus and malware remover)
- Sucuri Malware Scanner (I reinstalled and made sure to update it)
- Malware Finder
- Get Off Malicious Scripts (Anti-Malware) **The best malware spyware removal tool
I was very happy that we’ve finally fixed our website nicely. I was really worried as to how far the malware virus had hit us. Now our website is malware virus free and is using only 1/4 of the memory that it used to take before.
