    malicious file, by amcgall

    I received an email from my web hosting service, 1 and 1 Networks. They are reporting that one of my WordPress file is a malicious file. Here is a small part of the email:

    “A few minutes ago, our antivirus scanner detected that a malicious file was uploaded to your webspace.

    The file can be found in your webspace at the following location:

    ~/eyeontaiwan.com/wp-content/wp-jsconfigs.php

    To protect you against dangerous hacker attacks, our antivirus scanner checks every file on your webspace that is being modified or uploaded. If the scanner detects malicious code, execution of the file is disabled to prevent further attacks. To prevent calls to this file altogether, the file permissions have been reduced.”

    Since tis file is a part of WordPress I’m at a loss. The most recent Worsdpress version was installed by WordPress not by uploading from my PC. Every upgrade has been performed that way.

    If this system had a way to attach a file I would attach the file in question, wp-jsconfigs.php But alas I can’t.

    Does anyone know what’s going on?
