SiteLock is proud to present our latest feature in our dashboard, a malware scanner that not only finds the malicious code in your website but can also automatically remove it. This new scanning tool is called SiteLock Malware Automated Removal Tool, or SMART.
The Basics Of SMART
SMART has the ability to use the (S)FTP credentials for your website to connect to your hosting server and scan the files hard-coded in your site for malicious scripts, viruses, and other unwarranted code detected on your site.
At your request, or automatically, SMART can even remove some of the malicious code from your website and send the clean version back into place. With this tool, you can stay protected from hackers who try to break into your website’s information.
In this blog post, we’re going to discuss setting up and configuring SMART. It is essential that the configuration is set appropriately in order for the malware scanner to be able to effectively monitor for malware, and clean it from infections.
