GoDaddy flagged ZP files for malware.

GoDaddy flagged these files for malware. I examined them and they match the original files and don't contain any extra code. Anyone know what would cause that?

    If they don't have anything you need to get GoDaddy to tell you what exactly they complain about.

    I assume they just use another tool like Kapersky or whatever. These and their libraries are sometimes a bit, well, over active.

    I had last year a site (not ZP) that had no malware at all. In the end it turned out they complained about the name of a script which was absolutely okay. Additionally it was a link within a old post that linked to a site that was flagged as malware site. So not even the site itself was the issue…

    In the past we had server security complaining about our image processor file `i.php` and several years ago the name `zen` of the folder now called `zp-core` did as well.

    Without any details it is find a needle in a haystack…
  • Some people like GoDaddy, or just happened to begin using their hosting service and are unaware that other choices exist. Personally I find them less flexible and less convenient than other hosting options.
