WordPress is the most popular CMS platform in the world, so it’s no wonder that WordPress is also the CMS that is most often attacked by hackers and has malware embedded in it.
Sometimes novice WordPress users are confused about how to remove malware from WordPress website.
They become easy targets because they are less careful and less secure in using WordPress scripts, both in terms of WordPress core, plugins and themes.
Actually WordPress CMS is a very safe CMS to use (it can even be said to be the safest CMS currently available). WordPress continues to make improvements both in terms of security and features.
When your WordPress website is exposed to malware, you will usually find these things:
- Your website redirects itself to another website. But in some cases when you try again, the redirect doesn’t happen.
- Suddenly you find an outbound link in one of the contents, but the link you have never created before.
- When you type “site:yourwebsite.com” into Google, strange content will appear that you never created.
- You get a notification from the web hosting provider that your server has a problem, which leads to the server being disabled.
