    Use Sucuri security plugin, it has a tool to scan for malware and it protects your site from infections. Good luck!

    Maybe you should use Cloudflare.

    It could be your host. We were on a shared server once and our Wordpress got hacked via exploits in other less secure sites on the same shared server.
