    A little hint.  If you copy a Joomla installation into a folder underneath a WordPress site, this excellent plugin does a pretty good job of cleaning that up too.

    Keep up the good work….

    That’s a great suggestion for anyone with a site that is not WordPress.



    Just read the suggestion made by Tim Colman.

    How would that be done?

    Do you simply copy the folder within a WP installation … run the Anti-Malware plugin … repair the files within the folder … then overwrite the old, infected folder with the new, cleaned-up folder?

    Is that it?

    Thanks for any clarification.

    Yes, that should work. My plugin will scan all the files under the root directory of any WordPress install, even if the files are not related to WordPress.


    Dear Eli,

    Thanks for confirming that.

    I’ll try it and report back.

    (Thanks Tim for this nifty suggestion.)

    Reporting that I did try Tim’s suggestion and it worked pretty well.

    Since then, however, Eli has very generously assisted me with running deeper scans as my whole server — and every site on it — had become infected.

    Great software & monumental support from the developer (Eli).

    Best Wishes,
