It is possible that your files are still infected. Follow the below steps to ensure that your website is clean and free from malware:-

Download all the files/folders
Scan all your website files using antivirus - Comodo or Avast
After scanning using both antivirus software and removing malware files, upload all the files on the server. Ensure your hosting was deleted and re-created before uploading clean files

Once you upload clean files and if still Google shows that your site may be dangerous, then create new XML Sitemap and submit again manually to Google

  • Take a backup of your website and all essential files.
  • Backup your WordPress database
  • Google webmasters tool is a useful tool to identify malware issue.
  • Check all folders for malicious files on your web server.
  • Check all files to find any malicious coding or script
  • Check all your plugins
  • Find backdoors and remove them
  • I also recommend changing your web hosting provider

This step-by-step guide can be used by practically anyone to remove malware from WordPress. However, you must be willing to get your hands a little dirty and be comfortable with FTP and File Manager. If this is not your cup of tea, you may wish to look at our malware removal service instead.
