How do you identify WordPress servers that have been infected with malware? Even more difficult, how do you disinfect them? In the past six months, Lee Lammert and Chuck Doolittle have done just that with multiple WordPress servers. Please join us for this informative and insightful presentation that will show actual work on a a server using a shell prompt. In addition, we will review multiple ways to identify WordPress servers infected with malware and how to disinfect them.
