Hello. I am getting a Malware warning with certain browsers. Mostly Safari and Chrome.. Firefox seems ok. I do a site scan on sucuri and it brings up malicious code indicators for 4 different files. In …angularjs: “avia.js”, “aviapoly.js”, and “mediaelement-and-player.js”. In …wp-includes/js/jquery/: “jquery.js”. All of them had one line of code at the very end of each file that inserted a blank iFrame. If I delete these and rescan the site comes back clean and there are then no malware warnings… but they come back, almost immediately. So I deleted again and set the permissions to each file to 0444. This keeps them clean however no the portfolio items will not display. I’m sure I’m not supposed to set such strict permissions on those js files but I don’t know what else to do to keep the site clean and not display a malware warning. Can you help me with this? I’m struggling and shoulda been done last week :( Thank you very much.January 14, 2013 at 5:59 pm #103455
First download the most recent version of the theme files from Themeforest. There was a security update in the last release for the main framework files.
Once you’ve updated, ask your host to do a security scan of your server for any malware (explaining the issues). Of course change any administrator passwords on your account(s) as well.

Thank you for replying! I actually just downloaded Angular a few weeks ago. Don’t I already have the most recent version?January 14, 2013 at 7:14 pm #103457
If its 1.5 then yes. I typically just always recommend re-downloading if a user has had any issues.January 14, 2013 at 7:22 pm #103458
Would there be a way to keep my settings? I know I could save the few CSS changes I made but what about the Angular Admin panel settings such as color scheme, frontpage template etc.?January 15, 2013 at 2:20 am #103459
I don’t think those settings will be lost during a theme update. But just to make sure kindly create a backup to your database, you can use this as a reference:
Also if you have made some customizations in the theme files like custom.css or functions.php, kindly backup those files. (These are the ones that will be lost after a theme update).
