i scanned my site using sucuri.net and it said i had Malware. MW:SW:SEO.
i found it on this page in the footer area…schaferdesign.net/about-us and only showing in safari. Sucuri says it is on a few other pages too but i don’t see it there anymore either….
it was a very large block of paragraph text with generic drug names and a link to a porn site. I tracked down a snippet of code in the wordpress editor area. i think it was either the main index or page.php templates. I also discovered a page that was created that had the link in it.
so i deleted the string of code that lead to the page and deleted it i then deleted the page that the link was on and the links disappeared. but i do another scan in sucuri.net and it says i still have malware on the same pages. what should i do? i have about 17 wordpress sites on my server that have this issue.
I think you may have already cleared up the threat on this site. sucury actually caches the scan results so if you click on the link on sucuri.net to “Force a Re-scan” then I think you will see that it is clean.
If you have other sites that are infected with this threat and it was not detected by my plugin then I would love the opportunity to look at one of your infected sites before you fix it so that I can add this new threat to my definition update. If you are willing to give me a WP Admin login to one of your infected sites then I will do this right away so that you can update my plugin and use it to clean all your other sites automatically.
I am definitely a lover of the Hawaiian culture! Thanks for the tip on sucuri’s caching..That makes me feel much better! I will be scanning the rest of my sites and will let you know if i find it again.
Thanks for your help!

Just donated $29.29. Thank you for this awesome plugin!! I'm not a web developer so my knowledge of cleaning up malware and whatnot isn't up to snuff with major players. Your plugin has already saved 2 of my websites infested with malware and backdoor scripts. The last website I scanned had 18 backdoor scripts and 5 malware. After running your plugin, it worked perfectly and cleaned everything up! I can't thank you enough!! -- Eric Hartmann
