    I have a client the logged in and trashed a custom post and the site was infected and not working straight after.

    Is a malware infected computer a likely source of infection?

    It is possible that an infected computer would infect the post content or that a Key Logger on the client’s machine gave the user’s login to a hacker so that they could infect the content. But it could also just be a coincidence and the hack could have come in from a backdoor or another vulnerability.
