Malware on website was created by alanbrackenphoto
Hi,

I think this is a great product and I use it on almost all the Joomla sites I manage.

I have one site however where the Security Pro config is set to 100% with no indication of any errors or mis-configuration but yet the site is still got malware somewhere on it.

Is there any other tool or extension you offer to weed out hard to identify virus's

Regards

Hi alanbrackenphoto,

Is the malware scanner configured to analyze the entire filesystem and also look for suspicious patterns?

By default it only looks for known malware on files modified a week ago. To analyze the entire filesystem looking also for suspicious patterns you must change some settings from global configuration -> malware scanner tab. Timeline must be set to 10000 and you must enable the 'deep scan' option.

Regards,
Jose
