Guess what happened to my other WordPress Blog recently? I don’t know about you but I got hit with a stinking HOLASIONWEB.COM Virus. My WordPress Blog that is hosted at GoDaddy got attacked by this annoying holasionweb virus or malware. How do I know that this is a virus or some kind of a malware? Well, for couple of days when I logged into the admin page of my WordPress Blog I noticed that the layout of the admin pages were out of order, they were all scattered. So, that was annoying, so I decided to update my blog, because I thought maybe I did something. Then the second and the third time same thing kept happening and I kept checking the website without noticing anything. Then on the last time when I reupdated my WordPress Blog I noticed this message at the very bottom of the browser saying …connecting to holassionweb.com… and that was slowing down my WordPress administrator’s pages. So, I went and looked at my Blog on the User’s pages and noticed the same message …connecting to holassionweb.com… So, I thought maybe it is something normal that WordPress does. But just to make sure I typed in the Google search holasionweb and found out that it is in fact some kind of a virus or malware.
There are several ways by which your website or blog portal can be attacked by a malware or a virus. Here is how:
- Check for any vulnerable scripts
- Ensure there are no plug-ins or templates that are vulnerable
- Protect your sites using strong passwords
- Stay clear from FTP thefts and server hacks
- Always make contracts with reliable sources
Hence, ensure that you maintain a virus-free portal, especially if you are into day trading on the Crypto CFD Trader.
Well, that made my day 🙂 it pissed me off… I didn’t know where to start. This is the first time I got hit on my Blog with a Virus or Malware. I didn’t know where to start, what to save, what to delete, or what to update. So, I kept on researching and reading the articles about this virus and how to get rid of this holasionweb garbage. I prayed for God to help me through this. First I read this article on WPSecurityLock but that seemed like to many steps to take. Then I read this article at SmackDown blog and still too much info with too much steps. I mean it is all doable, but I didn’t know where to start.
Then, Finally, I found this website called Daniel Ansari’s Blog. Thank You God for Your Help, see I prayed and He did answer. Now this is it, this is the answer to my questions and prayers. His article helped me to get my WordPress Blog fixed from holasionweb.com malware really Fast, really Easy, and really Amazingly. I just had to download his PHP script file to my computer, then unzip it, then copy and paste it to my main root folder of my blog, then I uploaded this file unto the internet, then I had to go to this address http://www.example.com/scan_files.php just like he said, and that initiated the cleaning process, and then The End. Yep. It is that simple and that easy. I was amazed and extremely impressed. I don’t see that stupid message any more saying …connecting to holassionweb.com… neither on admin’s side or user’s side of my WordPress Blog. This dude did an awesome job, so I really recommend his blog for all of your to visit and add to your favorites, because you never know when you’ll get hit again with these annoying Viruses or Malwares.
