This month my website which is built on WordPress was attacked by the virus SoakSoak. I've been told that unexpected attacks like this are rather normal on the Internet.

The thing is that after SoakSoak I do not feel safe anymore.

An expert could finally solve my problem, but now I would want to install a good antivirus to harden my WordPress.



Can you please recommend a good antivirus for WordPress able to prevent new attacks like SoakSoak?



Thank you in advance for your response.

Hello Paul!

 I understand why you are cautious and that is how you should be. SoakSoak is not without of harm as it has its role, of course. Just to add to the previous, that SoakSoak aims next to the Firefox users and Firefox plugins, so if you are using that particular browser, you should be careful and install some of the NoScript plugins, as that is what it takes advantage of to get through

Mathew
