Multimenu plugin: suspected malware URL flagged by Wordfence

Recommended Posts


I have the Wordfence security plugin installed on my web site. I ran it to check for any vulnerablities and it returned the following message, flagging the PL multimenu plugin:

* File contains suspected malware URL: /wp-content/plugins/multimenu/jquery.multilevelpushmenu.min.js


Any ideas on this? Should I delete the file and will this affect the menu's function? Or do I disable the plugin? Any indeas are welcome.


Thanks you,

If you delete that file, the menu will not function. I recommend you speak to plugins developers and see what they suggest. As I highly doubt that script contains malware.

Please search our forums, before posting!

There is no malware. There is a url in the javascript comments, the domain in the url does not even exist anymore. I will remove the url anyway but its safe to ignore.

      @Danny what if you wanted to use just an icon instead? Swapping out MENÜ with an icon doesn't work.
      <i class="icon icon-bars"></i>  
      <script> jQuery(document).ready(function() { jQuery('.multimenu-standard-responsive').text('MENÜ'); }) </script> Source

      Hi Everyone,
      Problem with multimenu on a site http://owltalk.com/new/. So I have the text set to be black on a white background...simple enough. When one clicks the hamburger the text is white on a white background. If I set the header and background setting to a color one can see the white text. I have not invoked white text anywhere on this site so I am a little puzzled. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

      Please Note: Recent software such as DMS is not affected by this security advisory.   Three days ago we were alerted by Securi via email that there were a couple of problems with two of our legacy themes, namely PlatformPro and PageLines Framework.
      We take security seriously, so we wasted no time updating the free versions of these themes on the WordPress Repo and updating the pro versions over here at pagelines.com
      The following versions of the two themes have been patched and are available from your account area right now.
      PlatformPro 1.6.2 [download]
      PageLines Framework 2.4.6 [download]
      If you are using the free versions of the two themes available on wordpress.org, those files have also been patched.
      PageLines 1.4.6 [download]
      Platform 1.4.4 [download]
      In all cases you should see an update available in your WordPress admin area and should update right away.
      In the event that you cannot update the theme we took the time to create a small plugin that will protect your site.
      The plugin will work with all versions of both themes, just install and activate it for immediate protection.

      Hi there,
      Just wondering if there is a reason why there is no search option within Multimenu as there is with Navi - would be good if it did have it and it worked in a similar way and you could switch it off when you need to.
      Many thanks.
