Our domain is being blocked, but scans show no malware found.

Our website exceloffthegrid.com is currently being blocked by Malware Bytes with the message "Website blocked due to Trojan".

We have carried out malware scans from inside Wordpress, and our host has also performed malware scans, and no detection of any malware has been found.

Please can you either remove the block, or provide details as to how we can fix anything we need to on our side.

Thanks,

Mark

Hello,

It seems it was the xmlrpc.php file on the site causing the block. Unfortunately I couldn't find the infected version.
File looks clean now so site will be unblocked next database update. 
I'm fairly new to the web research and had to look up the content showing in the file (not showing here for obvious reasons). You may want to check settings on it so your site is not vulnerable to attack in the future.

I found this page explains it quite well.

Hope that helps.
