Dear Rashaad Sallie
Thank you for your reply and confirming the steps taken to attend to the matter.

Please investigate and remove any malicious files found.
It is important to note: The anti-virus software on our hosting environment is specifically designed for the purpose of maintaining server health and security and where we obtain helpful information, we do like to pass it on to the client. Because of the diversity of website infrastructure and code, anti-virus software is not an effective method of finding all infected files added or altered by hackers. Ensuring that the website content is free of back doors remains the sole responsibility of the Web Developer.
As always, should you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.February 28, 2017 at 1:50 am #752699March 1, 2017 at 9:24 am #753545
What version of Enfold are you using? as far as I know the content of the Enfold theme is clean and does not contain any virus or malicious files.

Im using the latest version – I always update to the latest. I have spoken to my host provider and we have agreed that the code is NOT malicious php code although their software reports that.March 2, 2017 at 11:16 am #754274
I just checked and none of the files contains any malicious code. This is probably a false positive were a file is flagged due to the nature of functions inside the file. Some of these functions are often use by malicious scripts but thats not the case here
