Recentently, we published two FAQs on finding free themes and free plugins, and both contained strong warnings about malware and steps to avoid infection, but what if your WordPress blog is already infected?
The first thing to do is to confirm the existence of a malware infection by running the Exploit Scanner plugin. Once you have confirmed the existence of malware, refer to this handy Codex guide. Why simply link to the guide? Because this handy guide is updated by WordPress’ volunteer community to present the latest tips and tricks to clearing the latest malware infections from your blog.
This is the fourth entry in our hopefully long-running WordPress FAQ series. What did you think, and what questions would you like us to answer next?
