How do we go about a malware removal?

Step 1: Scanning for Malware, Hacks and Vulnerabilities

Thanks to our many years of experience and our expertise, we scan all program codes, malware and hacks that have infected and infested your WordPress website.

Step 2: Identification & Analysis

For now, we need to understand the scale of the problem in order to determine the nature of the malware, bug, or virus and prevent it from spreading first.

Step 3: Removal of all backdoors

Hackers and cybercriminals often install so-called “backdoors” to gain repeat access to your WordPress website. These backdoors MUST be removed. If these are not removed, malware can quickly reinfect your website. We make sure no backdoors or malware & bugs are left behind that could lead to reinfection.

Step 4: Check database

Malware can reside not only in WordPress, but also directly in the database. Malware can be in the form of scripts in blog posts, or spam can be found directly in the content—often as hidden text that Google finds but isn’t overtly visible. It is also important to check the users that have been created and to delete any that you do not know.

Step 5: Verification of data

Here we check all your data for malware in your database. The bugs and malware hidden in the database are often hidden and hidden.

Step 6: Security updates and vulnerability fixes

Here we update your website to the latest WordPress version, install all necessary security patches and close all security loopholes, such as WordPress updates, plugin updates, theme updates, core update, passwords and more.

Step 7: Strengthen security measures

Here we introduce additional security measures to make your website more resilient to future attacks.

Step 8: Regular maintenance and comprehensive support

Finally, we make sure that your website works continuously, securely and first-class. We perform regular maintenance (back-ups, scanning for malware and vulnerabilities, WordPress updates and more) to keep your website up-to-date and secure.

This is how we restore your WordPress website safely, professionally and reliably and protect you from hackers and cybercriminals. Hackers, malware and bugs don’t stand a chance at webhead! It is our job to keep your website safe and secure from cyber criminals.

Malware and virus removal as part of webhead's support

Secure your WordPress website from cybercriminals. WordPress CMS is the most widely used content management system in the world and therefore the most popular target of hacker attacks. Every minute, about 90,000 pages under WordPress become the target of a hacker’s attack. This has seldom success with well protected pages, but with less protected ones it does. For example, if you even do without the regularly offered WordPress backup, sooner or later you have to expect an attack by malware.

How do you know if your own WordPress website has been hacked?

How to know if your WordPress website has been hacked by cyber criminals. Malware, virus, bug or hack are indicated by a few symptoms:

How does the malware get into a WordPress CMS?

Malware can get into a WordPress CMS or even a webshop created with WordPress in many ways. Usually human hackers and automated bots exploit security vulnerabilities. These are primarily caused by not using the WordPress backup. But there are more causes. Thus, a WordPress CMS should lock out the user concerned in case of repeated incorrect login attempts (at the latest after the third incorrect password entry). Some site operators do without this measure, which – combined with a weak password – can easily make them the target of a hacker attack. In such cases, a bot or hacker gets onto the website with a brute force attack, in which so many password combinations are automatically tried until the correct one is found. Other security vulnerabilities arise from outdated WordPress themes and WordPress plugins. Bot networks automatically search the web for websites with such vulnerabilities. There they install their malware. A popular gateway remains phishing emails, which exploit the naivety of administrators and users. However, virus codes can also originate from compromised websites.

How do we identify malware in a WordPress CMS?

A WordPress site can be scanned for malware. This is recommended on a regular basis anyway, because malware can work unnoticed in the background for a long time. We offer our customers this scan every month. It is due at the latest when one of the above-mentioned symptoms appears, and also whenever the website is to be changed. For the scans for malware, our programmers with years of experience use, among other things, certain plug-ins.

You can also remove malware yourself - security & protection against hacker attacks with webhead

“How can I remove a malware?” Here are simple instructions so that you can also protect yourself from hackers and malicious malware. First of all, you should know that the scan and repair program Wordfence can be used to remove malware from a WordPress CMS or a web shop under WordPress. We recommend that you always make a WordPress backup beforehand and store it in a separate location that cannot be infected. After that, a WordPress update should definitely be done. If the latest version is on the server, you can first update all themes and plug-ins via the update manager. Here’s one thing you shouldn’t forget: changing all your passwords. Sometimes only the admin has a password that needs to be changed. The database password at the hoster and in wp-config.php must also be changed (Where is because that? It is located at the define line in the WordPress root directory, accessible via (S)FTP). After that, another WordPress backup should be done. Wordfence will then offer a scan that you can use to find malware and then remove the malware. In some cases it may be necessary to remove the malware manually. Unfortunately, we cannot write simple instructions here, since the process is complex and private users can hardly do it. That’s why we offer our customers the opportunity to have malware removed professionally by experts.
