Contamination signs

Redirect malware in WordPress can be quite stealthy, often randomly redirecting visitors to malicious websites without the website owner’s knowledge.

  • Unexpected redirects: Users are redirected to unrelated or malicious websites when they try to access your WordPress site or specific pages.
  • Traffic spikes or drops: Sudden spikes or drops in website traffic can indicate that your site is being redirected, either driving fake traffic or deterring real visitors.
  • Unknown scripts or files: Check your website’s files and scripts for any unfamiliar or suspicious code, especially in theme files, plugin directories, or the .htaccess file.
  • Complaints from visitors: If visitors report being redirected or experiencing other suspicious behavior on your site, take their feedback seriously and investigate promptly.

If you suspect that your WordPress site has been infected with redirect malware, it’s essential to take immediate action to clean your site and prevent further damage.

This may involve using security plugins, scanning your site for malware, updating WordPress core, themes, and plugins to their latest versions, and strengthening your site’s security measures. Additionally, consider reaching out to a security expert for assistance in resolving the issue.
