Thank you for your support!

Below is a list of what I plan to do with your contributions. Many of these idea's were requested by users and I am more than happy to hear about any ideas you may have. So hear they are, in no particular order:

  • Add a scheduling agent so that you can setup regular scan at set intervals and receive an email report if threats are found.
  • Add an easy way for you to report a specific file to me for closer examination when you find some malicious code that my plugin missed.
  • Make registration optional so you can download the definition updates without registering the plugin.
  • Add a JavaScript method to the login patch for when the session method is not available.
  • Create a list of professionals who are available for hire to remove malware if extra help is needed.
  • Check for new files that don't belong when running the Core Files Check to remove files that have been added to the wp-includes or wp-admin.
  • Create a non-WordPress-wrapper or CLI for people with infections on a non-WordPress site or for when your WordPress admin is not working.
  • Update the definitions of Known Threats as new malicious threats are discovered.

I will update this list when I hear your thoughts and suggestions too.

Here are a few of the major updates I was able to complete in the with past donations:

  • Added a Database scan to find and remove any malicious code injected directly into your content.
  • Added a Core Files Check to scan for any changes to WordPress files and restore them if any are found.
  • Added the ability to change the admin username if the current username is "admin".
  • Moved the quarantine files into the database and deleted the old directory in uploads.

Aloha and Mahalo,

Eli Scheetz


  • Thanks for your saved my small business.

    Just made a donation of $29.22 wish it could be much more but times are tight. Had Bluehost alert me to some bad files and told me to use this software. I ran it and found several bad files. Great tool but more importantly is the great support in helping me understand what was going on. I am a big believer in timely support and this guy has it!!! A must for anyone with a wordpress site.

    i am unable to run a scan on my site. it is saying there is a memory limit problem. I have increased the wp_memory_limit in the config file, but i still get the message.

    any suggestions on how to get the scan to run?

    • On February 23, 2015 at 11:11 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      The directive memory_limit (not wp_memory_limit) needs to be increased in your php.ini file. Alternatively, you should be able to run the Complete Scan regaurless of the memory_limit, it just might be a lot slower if your server does not allocate much memory.

    I dont know how to clean the site. Please help i am new in this.

    • On January 23, 2015 at 1:19 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      Download the latest Definition Update.
      Run the Complete Scan on your whole site.
      If there are any Know Threats or Back-doors then click the Automatic Fix button.
      Then check the Security section of your Google Webmaster Tools account and Request a review if necessary.

    I donated $14.88 for helping eradicate some viruses and backdoor scripts on my site causing redirects on mobile, and bluehost threatening to shut down my site for good if I didn’t get it fixed. Your plug-in save my site, which is my baby. I’ve cared for this site since it’s inception in 2009. I am forever grateful for the plug-in and will be a repeat user, hopefully not, but you know what I mean. Thank you so very much.

    Cant Thank you enough. All 10 websites I support were infected but thats in the past now thanks to ELI. Had to donate to a worthy course. Thanks once again.

    I was asleep at the wheel – too busy building WordPress sites for others and failed to pay attention to my own.

    Yesterday I had reason to login and was whacked with the big red Google Malware screen – scared the hell out of me!

    Got busy checking out the options for tracking down and killing the nasty stuff and after trying a few I found your plugin Eli – AMAZING JOB!

    Other plugins tell you there’s a problem but don’t make it easy to know where to look – your program pointed me to every single problem and then took care of it all for me.

    I now have a clean (and updated) site again thanks to you Eli – please accept my small donation along with my sincere gratitude for all your hard work!

    Hi Eli,

    Thank you for this plugin for WordPress, i’m using it on one of my sites so far, and will add it to my other sites too.

    Just made an initial donation of $14.88 usd and i hope that it helps you to keep going with the development. Will donate again soon, as i use the plugin on more or my sites.

    Thanks again!


  • On July 13, 2014 at 1:32 am, Health Internetwork said:

    Just donated to thank you for this brilliant plugin!!!

    Recently, my website was hit with some terrible malware after I installed a plugin.

    I can’t bloody solve it.. it redirects all my traffic to some survey site. I contacted my webmaster to fix it asap but he has no idea. We even contacted external ‘website rescue’ services but they charge us a ridiculous amount of money and told us it ‘could take up to 4 weeks’. Ridiculous, right?

    I was told to try this anti-malware plugin and found the root cause of it. Removed the malware-plugin that was responsible and our site is all back to normal.

    Thank you so much for this free plugin! My donation is a small token of appreciation. You guys rocks!!! WordPress should publicly thank you for your hardwork and contribution to the community!

    Many thanks! God bless and have a great day!

    how to run this plugin by cron or shell? =)

    • On March 6, 2014 at 9:31 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      There is currently no way to do this because of the multi-level processing of the Complete Scan. All of the results are returned in JavaScript and the whole scanning process is split over multiple executions to reduce server load and keep errors from impeding the scan completion. I need to write a remote execution process that would run on a secure server compile the results from the scan into an emailable format. I am working on making this concept a reality but it will take more resources than I currently have. I know a lot of people want this feature so I will be making a big announcement as soon as I get moving on it.

    After struggling to find a hidden/corrupted file that was infecting my RSS feed, Eli offered additional assistance and was able to remove it for me!
    I can’t think him enough for getting me back on line again!

    I’ve made a second donation, although your assistance was priceless. Thank you again, Eli!

  • On February 5, 2014 at 3:57 am, Patrick Batty said:

    Hey Eli,
    First off.. THANKS SO MUCH.
    What a great plugin.
    You just saved my bacon on a number of sites.
    I just sent a contribution.

    One quick question. On some of my sites I use the OptimizePress theme.
    These sites are infected.
    However OptimizePress also triggers a lot of false positives as well.
    Literally hundreds.

    Do you have any advice on how to deal with this?
    Thanks very much

    • On February 5, 2014 at 5:27 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      That’s a great question. I think all the OptimizePress files are obfuscated using the exact same encoding tactics that hackers use to hide their malicious code. If you can zip up all those files and send them to me I can try to go through them all and add them to my global whitelist but I would need to be sure that they are all completely safe before I would do that. The easiest immediate solution for you is to add OptimizePress to the list of folders to exclude from the scan.

  • On January 12, 2014 at 4:24 pm, Jennifer said:

    Hi there,

    Lots of great reviews I see! Fantastic.

    I’ve just made a donation as well, and have run a quick scan, but it’s still saying the the scan is not complete – even 8 hours later.

    It’s quarantined two viruses, which is great. What do you recommend my next action to be?
    Thanks in advance!

    • On January 12, 2014 at 4:34 pm, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      If there is a lot of files to scan the Quick Scan may not work well. Try the Complete Scan and let me know how that goes.

      Thanks for the Donation!

      • On January 13, 2014 at 2:31 am, Jennifer said:

        Hi Eli,

        Thanks for getting back tp me …

        When I started the complete scan, this came up. Do you have any idea of how to disable so that I can proceed with the complete scan?



        Another Plugin or Theme is using ‘callback_function_php’ 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).

        • On January 13, 2014 at 2:47 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

          The Complete Scan will probably still work but that explains why it’s going so slow. If it does not work or takes to long you can email me your WP Admin login and I will look for it myself.

    Hey Eli,

    I have just donated $14. My blog is infected by malware, and SEO Hosting says I should clean it up by myself. But I have no experience. I have tried with your plugin, but it does not detect the malware either. Any suggestions and help will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

    • On November 13, 2013 at 9:47 am, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      Did you download the latest definition update for my plugin?
      If you ran a Complete Scan on the whole site with my latest definition update and it still has not found any Known Threats then I will personally take a look at to see why it’s not detected. If it is a new threat I can add it to my definition updates and then it can be automatically removed. You can email me your WP Admin login if you need me to take a look.

    I scanned my word press file and updating to the latest version. However, it cannot find the malware, yet I can see it if I go to and look at the page source. It starts with:


    I cannot figure out how to find the pages that are infected. I’ve downloaded the files and run through malware software, but sill cannot find it infected file. There are other files that says it is int he About directory, but there is no /about/ directory.

    What to do?

    • On June 30, 2013 at 6:00 pm, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      It may not be in my definitions update yet. If you want to give my access to your WP Admin for this site I can find it for you and add it too my definition update so that it can be automatically removed.

      Your continued support is greatly appreciated. I hope to have the Automatic Definitions Updates working, and get the White-list up to speed soon. Then I will be working on the scheduled scan. I hope to make this work independent of WordPress so that you can use it to scan sites that don’t even have WP installed on them.

      Stay tuned for more updates…

    Thank you this is saving my ##$$% we had 100+ sites get injected with mass bad code.

    Would be nice to not have to register every site on every install.

    I also second an auto trigger scanning feature and would be cool to have an email feature to email the admin of any altered files when they happen.

    • On April 8, 2013 at 3:00 pm, Anti-Malware Admin said:

      Thanks for your donation!

      If you can geve me the login to one of your main sites on your server, that you would like to use as a master to scan all the other site on the same server, then I can get in there an modify my plugin to open up the scan range and include the other sites. Keep in mind this site that I change will effectively have access to see and change infected files on the other sites (much in the same way that your first compormised site was able to infect all the rest).

      As for the scheduled scans and email notifications, I am working on that feature and hope to have it done soon.

    I am a webdesigner and owner of and now days my clients are requesting WordPress sites for easy expansion and the overall easy to manage plugins one of my sites got hacked and injected with a Trojan virus that turn my sites into a mess. I did my research and men there is a lot of companies out there that will charge you and arm and a leg for a service like this and not to mention the hosting companies turning their backs at you or offer expensive and worthless stupid dedicated technical support “NETWORK SOLUTIONS” that at the end they eat up your time and fix nothing. I am EXTREMELY GLAD i found Eli, i went and install the plugin and at first I was still having some difficulties and Eli step in to the rescue fixing the site within minutes. I am proud of authentic services like this that offer genuine services and back up their product 100%. From now on all my site will have this feature as part of their package. There is no words to describe I thankful I am for this outstanding service! Aloha Eli

      OK, its even better than I originally indicated. Not only is the plugin great, but the support is second to none. Eli has been great with his support, has followed up as promised, and has shown great patience with a relative newbie. Support this plugin, it’ll be some of the smartest money you’ll spend your website.
