Deleting the Trojan

I received a message in my Entrecard Inbox informing me that my site still showed that it has a Trojan whenever  Jude access it from her end. And yet I thought it was all gone. She was kind enough to send me a screen shot of what she sees every time she tried to load my page. After arriving tonight, I immediately pulled up my site and an error message was telling me the site won’t load since the connection timed out. And instead of contacting my tech support to have the problem fixed and to get rid of the possible trojan, I tried to look for the trojan first using my FTP client. Then I saw it! The file AC_RunActiveContent.js is a java script sitting on my public_html folder. I immediately deleted the file. Afterwhich, I tried to load the site and it loaded successfully. I also tried to login and update some of my plugins and it worked. Previously, I was really having a hard time getting the updates since it always gave me an error when I try to access my FTP. As for the reason where and how I got that script, I really have no idea. With that file gone, I just wish that I won’t have problems with the site’s security anymore.

Right now, I’m trying to be techy as I try to do a manual upgrade to get the latest version of WordPress. Everytime I click on the Automatic Upgrade button on my WordPress platform, it gave me an error message so now I am attempting at getting it updated manually. Hopefully this will work and it won’t screw my site. hehehe.

Well, I guess it worked since I was able to post this entry 😆

To Jude, thank you very much!

  1. So happy I could be of help and so glad you were able to fix the problem. I really like Avast and it has protected my computer from many problems while dropping and it always identifies the problem files. Have a great weekend and good luck with your upgrade.
