Coinhive malware

Norton says the site listed below is infected with malware.
Only thing I can find is the following in the headerinclude template.
Can someone educate me a bit about this and what needs to be done to clean this up?

CoinHive is a cryptocurrency miner which uses CPU power of the people that are visiting the forum to mine cryptocurrencies. It's basically an alternative to showing ads, but unethical in my opinion.

It's usually based on third party scripts so just removing the code is fine most of the time.

It's not just your opinion. Cryptocurrency miners have been classified as malware.

You need to everyplace on your hosting and reupload files...If you only remove codes from that template then the problem will be not solved completely and you can get it back.

Try to contact this guy https://forumweb.hosting/17636-virus...to-defend.html

He can help you to scan and remove malware/virus on web hosting server.
