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

    Dear Eli,
    your plugin is so fantastic i found it stupid not to have a french translation to enlarge your audience.

    I have translated the readme (stable) and dev (stable + trunk) branch. Contact me if you need more or if you have any questions.

    Hello

    Thank you for your time. I installed and ran the program. It only found potential threats. But I ran on Sucuri again and it shows that there is Malware. Not sure what to do. Any advice much appreciated.

    Hi there,

    First of all, congratulations on your fantastic work!

    Regarding Multisite installation, I was wondering what would be the best practice and hope you may elucidate that for me.

    Let’s say that my primary domain is MyDomain.com and at this multisite structure I only have several sub-directories such as: MyDomain.com/site1, MyDomain.com/site2, MyDomain.com/site3 and so on, with no other different domain on it. What would be the best choice from the bellow options?

    1) Let’s suppose that I install the plugin but leave it active only at my primary domain. Once I scan it, will it scan every other site (subdirectory) on my network? Will the sub-directories be protected against brute force attacks at their specific WP Admin Login pages? In other words, with a single installation at the primary domain with the proper setup of the Sacn Settings and often looking for New Definition Updates to keep it updated, will all my sub-directories be protected as well?

    2) If I install it at the primary domain and activate it through the entire network but I only setup the proper Sacn Settings and regular look for New Definition Updates at the primary domain, would work better than the first choice above? I mean, in this case will the scan go through every subdirectory and all login pages be safer against brute force attacks than the first option, but still easy to manage it through the scan setting and regular updates on the primary domain?

    3) Or neither one of the choices above would be the best practice and the proper approach would be install and activate it through the entire network (with the same email address as I have read in other comments), but setup the Scan Settings individually and look for New Definition Updates very often in each one of the subdirectory WP admin panel?

    I hope I have made it clear ;-) and you could help me out advising the best approach for this particular scenario.

    Thanks a lot for your time and help.

    Have an awesome week!

      First, to be clear, multisite installations use the same set of core files for all sites. That is why only the Network Admin can access the setting and run scans. Also, as a Network admin you can run the scan from any site and it will scan the same files.

      Now for the best practices for a multisite installation: after installing the plugin it would be best to Network Activate it from the Network Admin menu. Then you should go to the wp-admin for each of the sites and register the uniquely generated installation key (you can use the same email address for all registrations so that they will all be on the same account). You can also change any settings or firewall options that you would like to on each site.

      You can run the Complete Scan from any site as long as you are a Network Admin.

        Just one last doubt. Since the scan may be managed from the main site, what would be the best practice regarding the Download of New Definition Updates. If I check the main website admin panel constantly to keep it up to date and run the scan from there, would I still need to worry about Download the New Definition Updates in very single panel of my Network?

    Hi,

    First, thanks a lot for your plugin.

    I launched a “complete scan” and right now, I just have the following information “Complete Scan of www started 20 hours ago and has not finish” without further indication of how much is actually done and/or how much is remaining to be done. I left the default settings : “Scan Depth -1″ and “skip files with the following extensions…”.

    How long can it take to complete a full scan ?
    Thank you.

    Best regards,
    Stephane.

      It sound like the Complete Scan was interrupted before it was able to finish. You have to stay on the scan results page as it runs the Complete Scan and then fix any Known Threats that it finds before you leave that page.

      It looks like the only thing that is still not fixed on your site is that the site Title has been changed to “Hacked By Pak Monster, etc., etc…”. You can change the Title of the site on the General Settings page of your wp-admin or you can check the header.php file under Appearance -> Editor. Please let me know where you find it.

    Trying this wonderful tool, so far I love it. Will definitely donate as soon as my cleaning finishes.
    Just a recommendation, on each site I am running it, I have to manually delete .ico from the exclusion list (skip names)
    I am having endless threats shit in form of .ico named like favicon_239e5e.ico, favicon_dec111.ico, favicon_e69c66.ico
    So, maybe ICO don’t have to be in the skip by default.
    anyway, now I deleted ALL the skips and scanning even jpgs :) ))))
    I always wanted to be a carpenter

    Reply
    • On October 29, 2017 at 7:52 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      Thanks! I set the ICO and other image file type to be excluded by default because those file types cannot be executed directly by your server when they are called up in a browser, they are essentially harmless on their own. It take another PHP file with an include statement to invoke the malicious code in an image and so that is what my plugin looks for by default, effectively rendering the code in the image file useless. You can change those defaults as you have done and this will help you with a thorough cleanup but it will also take a long time to scan all the binary image files that are harmless, so it is not recommended by default.

      P.S. I too find a sense of joy and satisfaction in building stuff out of wood ;-)

When I checked your login page I could see tha the code is active and working for me. If you try it again and it’s still not working for then you should check your browser settings for popup blockers and make sure that there are no JavaScript error on the page.

      Actually your site is now clean. Sucuri caches their scan results so you were seeing the old problem that had already been fixed by my plugin. At the bottom of their scan results page it said:
      *Cached results from more than 2 days ago. Force a Re-scan to clear the cache.

      So I clicked on the “Force a Re-scan” link and it came back clean.

      Yes, It’s probably malicious JavaScript output that is invoking this redirect, but the source might be encoded in a PHP script, if so then my plugin should find it. If it’s not in a PHP file or my plugin is not finding it then you could check the content of your pages and posts to see if the JavaScript was inserted there, You could also check for text widgets with JavaScript inserted into them,

      If you can’t find it then you can contact me directly through email for more support.

    I have a new client who I’m scanning their server. It has been running for about 14 hours now, but it stopped counting time at 695 minutes. The activity at the top has kept moving, but it says “Re-Scanning …” and the Scanned Files count has not increased.
    They are using 1and1, so I understand why it is painfully slow, but I would like to see some progress.

    What would cause this, and is there a way I can get it to progress?

      It might be stuck in a loop trying to rescan all the folders that it has not gotten to yet. There may be a recursive symlink in the path or there are just too many subdirectories to get through them all before your server is timing out. You can check the error_log files on your server, they may hold some clues as to why the scan is getting stuck. You should also make sure there are no cache files in the path, that can make the scan take way too long and the cache files should be deleted anyway if you think the site might be infected. You could try scanning a smaller amount of file by only selecting certain subdirectories at a time (Click the folder names under “What to scan” and select one at a time per scan).

      You could also consider moving the site to a faster and more secure server ;-)

        Thank you. I let it run until just now (86 hours) and it got up to 97% complete, but it actually dropped the elapsed time to 521 minutes and the files scanned dropped significantly as well.

    The scanner reports a backdoor alert from a sucuri file. This is a new client’s existing website, so I don’t know if he’s ever had a sucuri account. The file sits on the root and starts with sucuri- then a bunch of alphanumerics. Is this anything to be concerned with?

    BTW, I’ve already donated, but not through my account or the plugin. It’s from the same PP email I used to register.

      That code is not part of the sucuri plugin. It looks like something sucuri might have put on there if you hired them to fix your site but I can’t be sure. You can remove that code and it shouldn’t affect the functioning of your site.

      The bigger issue for you is: How did they inject that malicious code into your site in the first place, and will they try to do it again?
      If your server still have the same vulnerability then you may still be susceptible to reinfection by this threat. Keep in mind that it may not even be your site that is vulnerable but possibly another compromised site on the same server that is spreading the infection to your site. If you are on a shared hosting plan then you should seriously consider changing hosting providers.How many site do you have on this host and do you have any other hosts you could easily move to?

          The typical shared hosting account is particularly susceptible to cross contamination, witch is what makes it such a target for hacker. I don’t know why the hosting providers don’t protect their clients more except that they usually benefit from the opportunity to up-sell you to one of their “more secure” hosting options, usually at some much greater price. I myself have created a Super Secure Hosting environment that solves this cross contamination issue. It is admittedly more costly than the shared hosting plans from the mega giants, but with my focused on security I have found a way to prevent this cross contamination threat. If you would like to migrate your sites to a new secure host then you can contact me directly and we can work on a hosting solution that meets your needs.

      Check your .htaccess file in the site root. The hack might have replaced the normal WordPress code, and now that the hack is gone there may not be anything there. You can go to the Permalink Settings in your wp-admin and save the setting on “Plain” and then change it back to “Post name” or whatever it was before, and that should rewrite your .htaccess file for you.

      It is common to be targeted for automated re-infection once your site has been breached. The server may have a root vulnerability or a scheduled task that will cause your site to get reinfected on a regular basis. There may also be many other infected sites on that server that are spreading the infection around and helping to keep this virus alive on that server. Is this a shared hosting account? How many sites tdo you have on this server?

      There is no error on that line or in the code you copied here. However, I did notice that this code on that line was from an older version of my plugin. Please upgrade to the newest version and then, if you are still getting an error, please send me a screenshot of the error you are seeing so that I can find the true source of that error.

      Install my plugin, then register your installation key and download the latest definition updates, then run the complete scan and my plugin can automatically remove any Known Threats it finds.

    Getting the following message – Quick Scan of html started 12 hours ago and has not finish?

    The full scan timed out after about 10 seconds. I have over 1600 post, bunch of photos etc etc.. Any ideas?

      It does not matter how many posts or photos you have, that will not make it take longer. Besides, the problem you are having is not that it’s taking a long time but rather that the scan is not finishing (maybe ever).

      Quick Scans only take a few minutes. If it’s not finished in a few minutes it’s not going to finish.

      As for the Complete Scan, I’m not sure what you mean by “timed out after about 10 seconds”. Can you send me a screenshot of that?

      It ma also help to check the error_log files on your server to see what is actually causing these problems you are having.

      Make sure you have the latest definition updates, then you can simply click the Automatic Fix button to remove the malicious code from those files.

      After you have a clean site you will need to “Request a Review” from your Google Webmaster Tools account so that google will remove that warning.

          The wp_options table is in your database. There is no direct DB access built into WordPress so you would need to access the DB through your hosting control panel (or PhpMyAdmin).

      Just use the same email address when registering all the other sites and they will all be under the same account. Donate as much as you would like on site that is registered to that account and you donation will be reflected on all those sites ;-)

    Hello,
    I just downloaded your plug. I ran the scan and a threat was identified in Read/Write Errors. There was no repair button with the link it identified when I hover over the link I get a message “failed to read this file! (readable? Eww-r–r-r–]). Since I am a novice at this (or anything that falls under IT/programing), I was wondering if you could let me know what I need to do next.
    My email has been spoofed and I am receiving up to 100 “undeliverable” email messages an hour. I was able to figure out that the spoofer used my shared server to get to me…and yes, I have now been educated on why not to use a shared server (and will be rectifying the issue as soon as I can get the “undeliverable” email notifications to STOP!!

    Thank you,
    Kerry

      Read/Write errors, by definition, cannot be fixed automatically. Those are files that my plugin could not read or write to, therefore my plugin cannot fix them for you. It does not mean that those files are malicious but you will need to investigate and fix the permissions manually (with escalated permission because anything running under PHP, like my plugin, will not have the necessary access).

      Thanks for great recommendation!

      Also, if you will send me those Potential Threats that you found malicious code in then I can add them to the Known Threats in my next definition update so that they can be automatically removed.

    Eli,
    I have a serious problem. I am under constant attack for 2 of my blogs where I have installed your plugin. The point is that today Google blacklisted both of my blogs because of malware… I’ve got the following message “Warning – visiting this website may harm your computer!” and from Google search you simply cannot access these sites.

    I am asking you do you have any solution for that, because as soon as I clean the site using your plugin at once after some time, maybe even hours it is affected again. As Google needs 24 hours to put site back again it will be again affected and it is practically dead.
    PLEASE ADVISE!
    Primoz

      Your sites are clearly not safe on the server you are current hosting them on. In order to keep them from getting reinfected by this same exploit you may need to move them to a more secure hosting environment. I do offer Super Secure Hosting for situation such as this. You can sign-up for my hosting here if you need a place to host your sites that is safe from these hacks:

    Hi – great plugin. I’m getting this message in the admin window. Can you please tell me what this means?

    “Another Plugin or Theme is using ‘Bot_ContentGenerator::addLinks’ to handle output buffers.
    This prevents actively outputing the buffer on-the-fly and will severely degrade the performance of this (and many other) Plugins.
    Consider disabling caching and compression plugins (at least during the scanning process).”

    Reply
    • On June 8, 2016 at 5:23 pm, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      That message means that there is some code on your site that is invoking an output buffer handler which can alter the content that is displayed on your site. It is difficult to detect exactly where that code is included but my plugin should find it if you run Complete Scan with the latest definition updates installed.

      As the notice on those results states: Those files are likely not malicious at all. So you don’t need to do anything with them. That’s why my plugin does not automatically fix them. However, if your site is still infected and there are no Known Threats (in red), then you may want to have a professional take a look at those files first to see it the infection might be in those somewhere.

    So for $29 donation you think your plugin should find and clean SEO Malware as well as HTML: HideMe-l [Trj]?
    These seem to be the two I’m having issues removing.

    Thanks!
    Let me know and I’ll pay now.

      My plugin should find and clean all those malware infections if you have the latest definition updates, even if you do not donate. However, if you do donate at the $29+ level then you can use the Automatic Updates to install the Core Files definitions and that should make the scan and fix process faster, more accurate, and more effective overall.

      Please feel free to contact me directly with more specific info about your site and your infection if my plugin is not finding it for you.
