Hello,

I created a few html5 landing pages and one wordpress site which all went to the same public_html folder. An Adwords campaign was running on one of the landing pages and Google flagged it for malware. We ran an antivirus as well as the hosting provider and they detected that every single site I did with Themler had Malware. They have been cleaning it ever since. Why is this happening with Themler sites and how can this be prevented? Non of the other sites (non Themler) were infected.

this may be a false positive, what was detected by which antivirus and in which themler files?

Hi mburgener. It was detected by Kaspersky and I am not sure which software Hostpapa used on their end but they shut down the site due to the attack. Basically Themler is being blamed for it by them. I attached a screenshot of the trojan.

Hi,

Is there is a way to check more details report?

Could you please export theme from Themler and check the files of this fresh theme with the files on the server. Is there any extra code which you have not added?
I also suggest that you check and clean if needed all websites on this server.

Thank you,
Olivia

I just uploaded a new page that I created yesterday. I checked the files for viruses and they were fine. I uploaded them and now Google has come back with another message saying the website has been hacked by a third party software. This is an htmll5 page. I downlaoded the zip to not include the themler editor. If it is indeed giving a false positive, how can I remove all traces of themler from the html5 page.
