malicious malware

I have just received the following message from my host:

Our malware scanner has detected malware contained in your hosting account.

You'll need to clean/remove/reinstall the files listed below (as applicable) and then take additional steps to secure your CMS.

The infected files are as follows:

Please be aware that should any service or reputational impact occur due to the malicious content held in your account, we may have to resort to account suspension.

I have no idea what these files are and if anyone can help me sort this out I will be very grateful

  • Yikes, that's definitely not a fun message to receive from your host. It sounds like your hosting account has been compromised by some nasty malware.
    First things first, don't panic! It's important to take action, but stay calm. You'll want to remove those infected files ASAP and then take steps to secure your CMS.
    If you're not sure how to tackle this, reaching out to your hosting provider for guidance might be a good idea. They might have resources or support available to help you clean up the mess.

  • Hi gws
    Thanks for the reply. Yes I do use acymailing on my site. What if I uninstall acymailing would this solve the problem?
