    My developer uploaded from wordpress bbpress shortcode plugin and it brought the whole website down and infected other wordpress website in my hosting. It was huge problem and we’re still sorting it out.

    This is the email I received from my hosting provider right after attack. You can see malicious file below.
    Do you have any comment on this?

    Hi there,

    This is the file it’s pointing to and there is definitely no virus in there by default:
    https://github.com/tomusborne/generatepress/blob/master/functions.php

    I would recommend try re-installing the theme.
