Hi folks. My domain https://plantbasedsavage.com/ on which I run a WordPress site has been infected with the “Search Contest 2021” malware which redirects all my visitors to a scam page. I contacted my host Bluehost who told me to set the SSL settings in Cloudflare to flexible and purge the cache. I did both and the problem remained. Bluehost told me to contact Cloudflare so I came here.
The last StatCounter visit was 15:14 Tuesday 8th June. I did a search of the community here for the virus and nothing came up.
Running the diagnostics on here, I took the advice to proxy “all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records to avoid exposing your origin IP.” and enabled DNSSEC with GoDaddy just now.
Anything I can do? Finding the whole thing quite confusing.
Thanks a lot for the swift responses, everyone – I really appreciate it. I’ll take a while to work through the suggestions. I’m not able to access my WordPress dashboard so I’m just researching how to reinstall WordPress and backup etc through other methods.
Let me try these and get back to you. I’m not even a bit techy but will try my best.
