Restoring files

Infections can do mainly four things to your site:

Add Files

  • If we detect infected files that were added or injected into your site, we will simply remove them, always saving backups.

Edit Files

  • If we detect files that were edited, we will simply remove the bad code inside of your legitimate files and also take a backup of that file.

Overwrite Files and Delete Files

  • However, if the infection overwrites or deletes files in your site, there is not much we can do. We will try our best to restore your site, but in these scenarios, we usually need your previous backups of your site.
