American$ was going to install some plugins.
Downloaded via WordPress site and uploaded to.
I tested a few of them and two came back showing infected. They may be false-positive. Figured this would be a good topic to bring into a discussion. Curious how this would have affected my overall sight. When you install a plug-in it is accessible, and can gain access, to everything contained within and under that URL, correct? Whether you use a subdomain and/or subfolders there is no real isolation, from being infected, One would have to isolate by creating a whole new URL attached with a new site on the server, correct?
So allow me to reiterate, and make sure that American$ has this straight. Every file is in one of two places htdoc., and because of this, your website would be protected, due to the fact you stated, “If file is really infected, you would be protected by this”, correct?
Also, “Lightspeed does not work well on free hosting”, could you provide a quick reason why, please?
The Litespeed Cache thing may be a false positive, as it could just be a legitimate plugin. But the “antihacker.zip” file is flagged by four different anti virus scanners. And I don’t know where that zip file is from.
The file “antihacker.zip” sounds as legitimate as a file called “definitely_not_malware.zip”. As in: it could very well be pro hacker.
Not necessarily. Our filters are more targeted towards filtering phishing sites and other malicious website activities rather than malicious downloadable files.
We can say 3 instead of 4
because the older version of ZoneAlarm (the one we see on virustotal) uses the Kaspersky AV engine, so it is the same product that is in the official Kaspersky AV and the names of the malware are the same.
While the newer version of ZA gave up on it like many other companies due to distrust in Kaspersky (doubts that the russian regime controls that too).
