WordPress troubleshooting: How does Webhead proceed with malware removal?

Step 1: Scanning for malware, hacks and security vulnerabilities

So that we can successfully remove all malware, we start with an analysis. First, we scan all program codes, malware, and hacks that have infected and infected your WordPress website to discover the problem and choose the right measures.

First, we need to understand the extent of the problem in order to determine the type of malware, bugs or viruses and initially prevent them from spreading. In most cases, it takes years of experience and expertise in the specific area to discover the actual problem. This is where our developers with years of experience come in and analyze the entirety of your WordPress website.

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

Malware can be found 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 is not openly visible. It is also important to check the users you have created and delete any you do not recognize.

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

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

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

Finally, we make sure your website is continuously secure and first-class.

Protect your WordPress website from cybercriminals. The WordPress CMS is the most widely used content management system in the world and therefore also the most popular target for hacker attacks. Every minute, around 90,000 WordPress sites become the target of a hacker attack. This is seldom successful with well-protected sites, but it is with less protected ones.

How to tell if your WordPress website has been hacked by cybercriminals. Malware, virus, bug or hack can be recognized 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.
