Our recommended WordPress Security plugin, iThemes Security, now has Malware Scanning powered by Sucuri SiteCheck, which uses a 10-point site check to scan your site for known malware, blacklist status, website errors and out-of-date software.
Sucuri scanners use the latest in fingerprinting technology allowing you to determine if your web applications are out of date, exploited with malware, or even blacklisted. The scanner also monitors your DNS, SSL certs & WhoIs records.
To start using Malware Scanning in iThemes Security, visit the Settings tab. From the dropdown menu, select Malware Scanning.
From the Malware Scanning section, click the Scan Homepage for Malware button.
Sucuri SiteCheck will go to work and then give you the results of the malware scan. You can also view the results from the Logs page.
The free version of iThemes Security allows you to manually run malware scans on the homepage of your site. To run automated malware scanning you will need to upgrade to iThemes Security Pro.
