All my websites have a spam or malware report in URL checkers for malware online.

But I cant get access to my wordpress website ( I get error 500), and wp-admin is not working.

This is a mail I got from Digital Ocean.... (NetCraft abuse Report)


We have detected a cryptocurrency investment scam site hosted on your network:


Would it be possible to have the fraudulent content, and any other associated fraudulent content, taken down as soon as you are able to?

Cryptocurrency investment scams are sites that promote fraudulent cryptocurrency trading platforms, either directly or by mimicking well-known news sites. These platforms suggest high financial returns, but do not pay out the amounts promised. They often tailor the content served based on the visitor’s country to provide a more convincing scam.

IMHO, the easiest method is to rebuild the server with an existing snapshot on DigitalOcean if you have one.

If not, manually fix it by following HERE for the WordPress official recommended fix method.

If you already have any of malware scanners, just try it.

Note, you can only upgrade from CentOS to CloudLinux, not for Ubuntu/Debian system.

I hope you get to the bottom of this.
