Unbelievable. 40$ to delete a file.


Sounds like the virus opposes naive deletion. One should first need to find its guard. Well, anyway, such things require security specialist, so they cost money.

Mike should delete everything from the current site. Hope that will stop further distribution of the virus.

I think the question should be asked, "How did that file got there?"

Was there a security hole in the blog software?

Was the password guessed, sniffed or stolen?
(There exists Windows malware that steals saved FTP/SCP passwords...)

Until the security hole is closed for good, the file may reappear again.

I would suggest looking at the file's modification time, and checking the HTTP / FTP access logs for suspicious activity around that time.
