How do I report a seller? I received the following warning from my hosting company.
You or someone with access to your account recently downloaded the following Wordpress or Joomla plugins, templates, components or themes for your site:
Each of these plugins or themes is a pirated copy of the original software, and each of them contained Trojan horse-type malware called CryptoPHP. This malware recently activated and this has placed this entire server on a Spamhaus blacklist for the next two days at a minimum. I have rendered the software that you downloaded inert and have removed the malware out of it as a one-time courtesy, but you need to know three things:
- The software is pirated software. You should uninstall all pirated software and get purchased, legitimate copies from the creator. Keeping this software might be illegal and is at a minimum, unethical.
- If this happens again, we will deactivate your account and require you to purchase a dedicated IP address so that you don’t get the shared IP address blacklisted again.
- I am not a security expert, and while I believe I have rendered that bootlegged software inert (I’m about 99% sure), there might be other malware hooks in them that I didn’t find, so I suggest you have your account checked by a security company.
Basically, because of the Spamhaus blacklist, no one on this server will be able to send email to any email address that subscribes to the Spamhaus spam service for at least the next two days, and there is nothing we can do about it.
Please uninstall the pirated software and do not download additional themes or plugins from that source again, or any other source that offers nulled software.
Not only do I not have a website, but they used malware as a theme AND caused a server problem to my hosting company. I need help in reporting this huckster.
