Zettapetta malware

Got two wordpress sites, both provoke this message from google

Warning: Something’s Not Right Here!
www.herbertquain.com contains content from zettapetta.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.

One of my sites has got dodgy code in most php files.

Question - anybody else had problems originating with zettapetta? If so, how did you sort it out? Does it really require wiping the whole thing and reinstalling from scratch?

Run the scanner at Sucuri on your domain to figure-out what’s going on. You can use the scanner for free.


I don’t work for them so this is no ad, but I subscribe to their service and the person who runs it is pretty good about staying on top of security issues and helping people clean-up their sites. Yeah, it’s a pay for service. If you’re running WordPress there’s also VaultPress.com that can push-out WordPress fixes but that also costs money and they’re still in beta.
