    Kindly explain the nature of the virus report.

    Is it wordpress or a nulled theme?

    an elaborated explanation will help to identify the problem.

    It may be due to plugin or theme or hot linked image

    Start by scanning your site with this website scanner: http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/

    Make sure you aren't using unofficial versions of any theme or plugin, particularly freemium and nulled themes and plugins.

    Why to pay 89 just remove the current theme and plugins installed from external sources. Check if it still showing

    is this a wordpress site? You probably have a dodgy theme/plugin installed.

    Do you have ssh access to the server? if so, a find | cat | grep "http://bit.ly/1u4lvPA" kind of search will show you the offending file. Also, check all the file permissions, make sure it's not world writable.

    I recommend going over:
    - Current Theme.
    - Current Plugins (with the plugin version).

    With only that you can be around 99% sure of what's the culprit. If you are using nulled scripts (either theme or plugins) there are big chances that they have included malware inside of it. If you want help though, I suggest you state what I mentioned before.

    Home Page:
    Check out modifications in .htaccess file or any injection of unrecognized iframe in site's content.

    ask your host, in most cases they will fix it for free.
    OR
    If it's not big website then just get your content and images locally and then delete every thing from server or host and then start fresh. install wordpress and theme and plugin again and put content back... Will not take much time if you got less content.
