just registered on the site as Ive run into a roadblock and have absolutely no idea what to do. I starting learning html/css/js about 2 years ago and started "helping"/taking clients to get some experience professionally.
I'm not overly affluent outside basic front end but am capable of using google/learning. Anyhow to the point. A site i built that I wont disclose (its got auto-download JS malware) has been infected.
At first i did a site scan through Sucuri that turned up 3 potential risks - i researched the ones there, did some updates to plugins and CMS versions and somehow that uncovered 19 more malicious files.
At this point I have no idea what to do? Is it smarter to just advise the client to pay the 120$ through online security companies to clean the site or is there an easier way for me to manage this?
If I'm being unclear, i apologize, still in the middle of learning
If you have any advice or questions, please let me know.
