Help I've got a trojan on blog & blogsite

Recommended Posts

Well it seems I have a trojan on my blog and blogsite. So I'm now trying to find out how to get right of it. At home which I click on my site my antivirus software popups with a warning that I have a trojan downloader, it doesn't get rid of it, and from my brief research and I could be wrong it seems that I need to search for suspicious code to get rid of it or possible upgrade .2.6.2, the thing is I tried to upgrade using automatic upgrade but it didnt work, so I'm really stuffed.

 

To be honest I'm really hoping the last resort is to take my blog and blog site down to start again, so I'm looking for suggestions on how to sort out my problem.

 

Thanks in advance

I'm not a WP expert, and can't advise you on getting rid of the malicious code, but if you know your site is infected the responsible thing to do is to take it down until you get it fixed. You don't want to knowingly spread this malware to innocent people visiting your site.

Thanks, I've now decided that will have to be the route to solving my problem.

I've heard rumors that some free themes come infected with viruses. I've never seen it, but it's possible that this is the case. I have seen themes with the footer written in Base-8 code. I won't use those themes because I don't know what they say.

 

I am not saying never use free themes. There are plenty of good free themes out there. Check out Randa Clay's themes www.randaclay.com/themes or the ones by Brian Garder www.briangardner.com/themes (scroll down to the free ones).

 

I agree with the others to take the blog down before it infects something worse, such as your hard drive.
