Malware problems

A few days ago malware warnings started in certain subforums and Google security claimed 2 files were infected. Today the number has spread to 25 so obviously this is spreading and a problem. What is the best way to handle this?

Running VB version 3.8.5 with all security patches as far as I am aware. Forum URL is if you want to take a look.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

It sounds like your servers been hacked, in that case I would contact your host and make sure you change ALL of your password to your sites and FTP, Databases etc and scan your computer too make sure it is clean too. Make sure your files and folder permissions are set correctly and look in htaccess for any malicious code too.

Actually it might not be a case of your site being hacked, it could be a member linking to viruses and such within their posts or signature, in that case I would check through all active members signatures thoroughly. Best of luck
