Help remove malware from website (Just remove a code)

Hello, i got malware on my website and rn it took a lot of time to load a website and after loading it shows ***<?:>*** on upper of the website. I found it in code but cannot find it in theme on wordpress, whats the best solution to remover this malware? site is: gabrielamendel dot sk, thanks!!

  1. I see that the codes also appear on other pages, so high chance it is inside the theme header file.

    Try looking into wp-content > themes > (your theme name) > header.php

    Hope it helps!

  2. Your site has been hacked – removing that code won’t do anything.

    To fix the issue, you need to identify how the malware got it. Malware is almost always a result of a plugin vulnerability being exploited. This happens if you don’t keep your plugins up to date or use abandoned or nulled plugins/themes. Remove or update the plugin(s), *then* clean the site (using Wordfence).
