We’ve dealt with a number of sites that somehow acquired viruses. It’s a big mystery as to how someone gets access to your files on a server. But, they do find ways.
The viruses usually redirect people’s web browsers to other sites. This means, they don’t stay or can’t stay on yours! There are some that can infect visitors’ computers, but most of them just redirect. It’s like a spider is sitting on your website and building webs that send people to other places.
We’ve helped several people get rid of their wordpress website viruses this year. If your website gets attacked and hacked, reach out to us to see if we can help you!
