Malware issues are time-sensitive and the fastest way to get support support from me is to leave a message on developer website

In case you find any issues with the plugin itself, pplease create a support thread in WordPress Support Forums. We want to make this better and help out everyone.

WP Malware Removal is sophisticated and extremely powerful yet does not require any third-party integration, does not send your files / data to external services etc. to work. It’s simple and does the job.

NOTICE: This plugin make call to wp-malware-removal.com to check for latest malware signatures (pretty much like what WordPress does when checking your plugins and themes for new versions. Staying up-to-date is a security best-practice. WP Malware Removal will inform you when there are new definition updates available. If you’re allergic to “phone home” scripts then don’t use this plugin (or WordPress at all for that matter).

Very very good plugin

Excellent plugin, fool proof scan. I've had issues with others when the scan breaks midway, but not this. I can even inspect the rogue files it flags.
