    Hi Eli,

    I have installed your great plugin and it seems to have cleaned my site to a degree. I do however keep being attacked by what appears to be a rogue RSS feed (I am actually a novice so not sure if this is the case.)

    Even after the scan it still appears and I’m going crazy. Could you tell me why this is?

    It looks like your theme’s header.php file is still infected. If you can send me a copy of this infected file then I will add it to my definition updates so that it too can be automatically removed.

    Thanks for the reply. Do you want me to copy the code from the wordpress site and paste it in to this chat, email it to you or would you like me to set you as a temporary admin user to the site so you can access?

    You can paste the contents into this forum topic or reply directly to my email. Thanks!

    I think this is the right bit of code. I’ve responded to your email too.

    It looks like you have already removed the threat from this file. This code looks clean and your site is not showing those malicious links any more.

    Did you use my plugin to remove the infection from the header.php file, or did you remove it manually?


    Vimal Popat

    I didn’t do anything other than copy the code. The strange this is I ran your scan earlier today and the malicious code still showed up on the site. When I just checked, it had gone.

    If it reappears, shall I let you know and perhaps give you an admin login?

    I’m happy to donate should this be the case.

    If you are using caching of any kind that may have resulted in the malicious code appearing on your site long after you had removed it with my plugin.

    In any case it looks like you are all good now. Feel free to contact me again if it comes back, and yes, please donate if you can ;-)
