    Has this been fixed?

    @Scott – Based on the research I conducted before publishing this post, no. Also, there are two different OptimizePress versions. 1.0 and 2.0. I don’t have access to the new theme but based on comments in the article I linked to above, the 2.0 version of the theme does not have a media-upload.php file.

    The 1.52 version seems to be okay (I managed to find one to test on), but I was highly amused that they have a Fauxgo

    @Mika E. (Ipstenu) – I too noticed the Fauxgo on their site. They also don’t have an announcements blog or an easy way to get in touch with them.

    Don’t know if my previous comment went through. If it did then delete this one. :)

    I found this on their support site.

    @Mika E. (Ipstenu) – A lot of people outside the WordPress community don’t know what the real logo looks like. I have even see the Fauxgo on a fairly credible journal where I think Matt was interviewed on. Can’t remember whether it was Forbes or WSJ.

    There’s usually a high correlation of Fauxgo and non-GPL licenses for WordPress Themes, as is the case here.

    It’s complete B.S. that OP has nothing on their site addressing this. All the threads listed above have been deleted!! This should be their #1 priority right now and they should have a highly detailed fix/repair post on their site with a video training. I have almost 10 sites right now affected with this freaking malware issue. Anyone have a great solution link?

    Does anyone know how to fix a site that is already infected because of this flaw?
