Forum Malware and Virus Removal

Not open for further replies.
I am new and non technical person. I want to start one forum with xenforo but I read that when you start forum there is big risk of malware and virus. How can I deal with it?.
Please guide me.

If you or your host have the server set up properly, then you shouldn't even get malware. Having HTTPS is even better.

Now, if your server does happen to be infected, here are a couple things you can do:
  1. Ensure you're on the latest version of the forum software
  2. Ensure there are no backdoors that would allow the attacker to access the server again (or another attacker to access the server) when you remove the malware
thanks Amaury.
Do you know anyone who can set up server for me?. And also take care of backdoors.
Please guide me. I am non-technical person.
