This Plugin was created to help WordPress admins clean infections off their site. It was inspired by my own need to to clean up one of my BlueHost accounts after a pretty bad hack (see How It All Started). It is still a little rough around the edges and I want to add many new and exciting features. It is currently being offered completely FREE of charge, though it did take quite a lot of time to develop, test, and make nice.

This project will continue to need my energy to keep it effectively getting rid of new threats and patching new vulnerabilities. That is why I am asking anyone who can, to please make a donation to keep it going.

Aloha,
Eli Scheetz

      Yes, The automatic fix option is available as soon as any known threats are found. Just make sure that you have downloaded the latest definition updates and then run the Complete Scan.

    Hi. Your plugin is great but I’m wondering why it’s skipping certain folders/files during a complete scan? I have it set to not skip any file extensions and yet it skips like 29 important folders during a complete scan. Some of the folders that it’s skipping I consider to be a priority for scanning. Thanks.

      Actually it was 24 skipped files, not 29 skipped folders, but those files are important files to scan for me. Thanks

        If you hover over each of the file names on the list of skipped files then it will tell you why they were skipped. It sounds like you may have already cleared out the list of file extensions to skip so my guess is that the remaining 24 skipped files were empty (0 bytes) so there would be no reason to scan them. Let me know what explanation you find in the ToolTip when you hover over those items and I can help you more if there is something else going on.

    Hi there,

    Just wondering whether the “Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall” plugin for WordPress will keep getting updates since it has not been updated for a while now. Thanks!

    Regards,
    Stav

      The plugin does not need frequent updates because I offer definition updates on a regular bases that can be automatically downloaded from within the plugin. When code changes are needed or when I have a new feature to release then I will release new plugin updates but otherwise the plugin itself does not need many changes.

          Sure, you can register all your keys under the same email address so that they are all on the same account. Then just make a donation using the link in any of wp-admin pages and you will have access to the premium features on all site.

            I see your donation, thanks. The premium features are automatically enabled when you donate. If you don’t see the option to enable the automatic update feature then try clearing your cache and refreshing your wp-admin.

        The WordPress Plugins page says that the plugin is untested with the current version of WordPress. Is this true?

        Reply
        • On March 26, 2021 at 3:36 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

          No, it just says that Because I have not released a plugin update since the last WordPress release. I release frequent definition updates which are downloaded directly through the plugin so I do not need to release plugin updates that often. I have personally tested my current plugin version with the latest version of WordPress and it does work fine.

      The premium features were automatically unlocked for the key that you already registered when you made your donation. Just refresh the Anti-Malware Settings page in your wp-admin and you should see the option to enable automatic updates. Check that box and click same and it will automatically install the core files definitions. If you don’t those option then try clearing your cache and refreshing the page again. If you need more help finding it then please send me a screenshot so that I can see what might be wrong on your end.

    Hi I bought your plugin, well made a donation so i could scan core files. However wordfence is detecting this virus

    The issue type is: Backdoor:PHP/apies-hex.8825
    Description: Hex-encoded apies.org C2 domain, typically found in backdoors

    But your plugin is not and I am stuck at 99%

    Got Stuck (1) Got Stuck (2) Got Stuck (4) Got Stuck (8) Got Stuck (16) Got Stuck (32) Got Stuck (64) Got Stuck (128) Got Stuck (256) Got Stuck (512) Got Stuck (1024)

      Thanks for your donation ;-) I have just now updated the Definitions with the Core Files for the new version of WordPress 5.6, so just make sure that the Automatic Updates is set to “Yes” and then click “Save Settings” again to automatically install the definitions for the WP 5.6 Core Files.

      If you find any files that are not getting cleaned by my plugin then please email them to me so that I can add them to my definition updates.

      If you run the Complete Scan again after this latest update and it still ends at 99% with “Got Stuck …” then can you see what files are left in the Queue that are not getting scanned (click on “Selected Folders
      ” on the right of the scan progress and scroll down to see which ones are not finished)?

          You probably registered those other sites to an different email address so they are not on the same account. You can click on the registration key to open the pre-filled registration form and change the email address to match the account with your donation and click submit. Then clear your cache and refresh your wp-admin and it should show your donation ;-)

    Hej, I finally made a donation today because I was able to experience first hand what happens when you focus on other things but not on the really important ones.
    Thanks for the great work!

      This is most likely because that file is too big for your server to open and scan using the memory_limit set for all PHP processes in your php.ini file.

      There are already multiple definition that look for malicious uses of the wp_create_user function. There are also many legitimate uses for that function so I cannot just ban the use of it all together or I would break a lot of otherwise functional sites. If you have discovered a new malicious use of this function or any other malicious code, please send me the whole file that contains these malicious scripts and I will add them to my definition updates.

    I added to my donation total. Use the plugin on all my WP sites and regularly run scans. I do have a problem that my Brute Force Protection does not populate on the Firewall options at the bottom. It just runs and runs….

    Thanks for a great plugin

      Thanks for your donations!

      The issue with the Brute-force Protection could be related to the permission on the /tmp/ directory, or a partition is full, or there is something else wrong with the session_start in PHP or the rewrite rules in the .htaccess files on your server. Or it might just be a JavaScript error caused by a popup blocker or other security setting in your browser. There are so many other things too that might be interfering with your ability to enable this protection on your server, so we need more information to figure out exactly what is causing this issue for you. Can you check the Console tab in your browser’s Inspector for any errors on that page that might explain why that option won’t finish loading? There might also be an error in the error_log files on your server that may reveal more info about the problems on your server that might prevent you from using this feature.
