    Hi Guys i have a bunch of word press websites, my site with the virus says this below

    Reported Attack Page!
    This web page at www.Example------ has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.


    I then downloaded Anti virus software on my other websites this one http://www.wordfence.com/ i then done a scan and it says one of my plug ins yarpp.org
    File contains suspected malware URL: /home/solics/public_html/wp-content/plugins/yet-another-related-posts-plugin/lang/yarpp-el_CY.mo


    YARPP.org was very good for SEO but im not sure because Google has now identified this yarpp.org as a attack page is it now worth me deleting the YARPP plug in. I just need help for me to know how to clean my website for viruses and how to keep it clean thanks a lot i can pay you good advice or for some one to help me but i do need experiance thats why i have posted here for some onist good advice thanks.

    They remove the warnings very quickly, but you need to clean your site first, then login to Google Webmaster Tools, verify that the site is yours, and send a request.

    Unfortunately, this is a common issue many come across when using content management systems like Wordpress, or Joomla. While CMS's are great for larger websites, they should be used sparingly since they are known to be a target of hackers. The problem that arises with them is that each version shares the same underlying code. This way, if a hacker manages to hack one wordpress account, they can hack others since the underlying code is the same. CMS's are major targets for hackers these days! its best to learn HTML and CSS, as well as some basic scripting, so you can build the websites yourself. Wordpress for one is a hackers paradise. Not worth all the headaches unless you have constant human monitoring of your networks.
