Malware from installing swap

Posted December 14, 2014 2.2k views

I just installed swap on my site last night and this morning realized that google has indicated that my site “may harm my computer” due to suspicious activity.

This warning has never appeared and I’m wondering if it has to due with creating the swap file. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I just confirmed that it wasn’t a swap problem. A host of wordpress sites were targeted today and this was unrelated. Anyone else experiencing malware from soaksoak.ru should go here:
