Frequently Asked Questions

Does Malcure scanner work with latest WordPress version?

Yes, Malcure is compatible with the latest version of WordPress.

How do I configure the settings in Malcure Malware Scanner?

Actually there’s nothing at all to configure. We’ve kept it super easy. Perhaps the only settings you can configure is the scan-rate of files and the automatic update of definitions. Configuring a high-scan-rate can hog the CPU of a low-powered web-hosting server. A low-scan-rate can take a long time to complete the scan. Disabling automatic definition updates can help you rescan the site quickly when you are in the middle of a malware-cleanup or hacked website recovery.

What types of threats can Malcure Advanced Edition plugin protect against?

Malcure WordPress Malware Scanner Plugin scans over 50,000+ types of malware in the WordPress database and filesystem. Additionally it checks the integrity of the core WordPress files. Remember, Malcure plugin is an on-demand scanner. Regular scanning ensures protection.

Is there a performance impact when using the Malcure Malware Scanner plugin?

Every plugin however small, will have some performance impact on the server. When it comes to security plugins, the stakes are high. Security plugins allowing firewall, vulnerability-scanning or patching add some overhead to the server-performance. Ensure that your web-hosting server is not underpowered and that it can easily handle the load associated with running at least a small-business website.

Is there a free version of the Malcure Plugin?

Yes, Malcure Malware Scanner Free edition is available in the WordPress Plugin repository.

How do I get support for the Malcure Malware Scanner Plugin?

You can use Malcure Forums for support. For Malcure Advanced Edition we provide premium support over email.

Plugin Reviews — Malcure WP Malware Scanner & Firewall

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Found my issues – Brilliant Support

    This plugin worked like a charm and identified a problem that other plugins had missed. I had a slight problem getting it to run on one particular site but after contacting the developer, I increased the memory_limit and got it running.

    The support from the developer was first class – They even logged into one of my sites to help identify an issue.

    One tip I would give is, give the plugin time to initialize – It can take 3 to 5 minutes (in my experience) to start – but it was worth the wait 🙂

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Free version works well. One of the better tools I’ve found.

    Free version does what it should… hunts down and identifies malware so you can remove it! Comprehensive reporting. The Web Application Firewall is a nice feature. Has blocked several potential exploits in just a couple days. The subscription for Advanced is very affordable for multiple sites.

    Finally I Have A Clean Site

    I have been trying to remove dirty files from a hack of my domain from three years ago. I noticed my site had dropped in search engine ranking. I also found when I posted links on the social media sites, ads and garbage normally came up. After running Malcure daily over a period of two weeks, I have been able to remove or edit all of the damaging files. What a great plugin this is. I will have Malcure installed on all websites I run for now on. It’s an essential tool for any web designer or host running WordPress. Very user friendly and very straight forward in identifying nasty critters that need to be removed to maintain a healthy site.

    Awesome tool! A must have for website owners and technicians alike!

    Great to see the effort for clean code and a great plugin for detecting troublesome bugs from WordPress websites. Great Malware Detection and Protection. The signatures are updated quickly. The scanning database covers options that may contain issues and not just posts/pages like some others.

    Out of the box this is a very easy program to get used to using. Picks up on a lot that the others did not.

    Works Great!

    When it comes to finding injected code it is a very difficult task, this plugin helped me find the infected files very quickly and thus I could eliminate the threats from two websites. At least it worked very well for me. I thank you very much!

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Works like a charm

    I host with GoDaddy and have used them for many years, but lately, it seems, is more about money than service. They sell you a package and tell you that you can use it one way, when you buy, they say, it should not be used that way! My website started getting infected and even after cleaning it didn’t seem to work… I think they only did one scan.

    I did a scan with this plugin, then removed the threats, and did second scan, removed more threats and by 3rd scan… I was clean. Thanks
