    Hey Guys,
    I wanted to install a nulled wordpress theme on my website. Today I scanned the file and there we go, virustotal found a detection. The resul is: TrojanDownloader.JS.avhq

    Here is the report:
    https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/...a703c5e6d1afb7e9540ce090/analysis/1490547505/

    Does anyone know what TrojanDownloader.JS.avhq does and how the fuck it can be in a wordpress theme and maybe someone know how to remove it. I would be so thankful for an advice.
    greetings TheDemne

    Nulled themes are the perfect way to get hacked and get malware

    Biggest mistake, learn from it.

    There are people happy to inject malice code into nulled themes and plug ins then have a backdoor to your sites and machine.

    Dude, just go and buy that theme from their legit source. Do not just get your hard work compromised over a few bucks.

    Some of us, including me, learned the hard way not to used nulled crap. Regardless where you find it. I found screwed themes even here in the download section back in the day.

    Thank you for your advices. I get the point that I should buy the theme but I have to pay for the license again for every new website I create (Themeforest sucks). I plan to create websites for 5 friends and that would cost me 5 * 59$ = 295$. I have no problem to pay once for the license but it sucks that I have to buy a new license over and over.

    There's a couple of theme's that require you to actually enter a purchase code (per install) to unlock some features / plug-ins (looking at you Avada...)

    If you are going to fly close to the sun prepare to have your wings burned.

    Should you decide to not, use one of the 47 million free themes out there or just pay for the one that is not free that you want to use.

    Noone forces you to buy this theme if you don't like the license terms. Use one of the gazillion free themes BTB mentioned instead or look for themes offered with bulk/developer licenses.
