    I did install Wordfence. Sadly the scan failed after 12 minutes. I read their primer about what do do if a scan fails prematurely. It’s a bit over my head. I’m not able to afford the premium package nor their support at cleaning my site. I’m retired on a fixed income and a very tight budget. Their $99 annual fee is more than I can bear.

    My web host, 1 and 1 is scanning my site and will deactivate any files it finds that appear to be malicious. I have removed the file that they recently discovered. I have also changed the password on my FTP account to a very strong password. Hopefully these measures will prevent future infections.

    In the twelve years I’ve run my WordPress site this is the first time something like this has happened.
