Malicious file reported by Web Host

I have shared hosting and when I uploaded the site it works fine and after one day the site goes down and I checked the port 80 status and I get the message say

Outbound Port 80, 443, 587 and 465 for your account are BLOCKED

During our regular scans, we have found malicious files in your account which may be infected with malware. Here is the list of files our scanning has identified :


Please clean up files listed above using virus/malware scanners. DO NOT delete the files directly as they may be important for your website to function. Kindly consult your/plugin developer before deleting and ensure that you have a backup on your local computer.

Note: In most cases, deleting these files may not be sufficient. You may have to delete the infected theme/plugin and reinstall to the latest version of CMS to fix the issue permanently after the port is unblocked.

Unblocking the port

Once all the files are cleaned, please press ‘Unblock Port’ button given below. Our scanners will scan the account in the next few hours and unblock the port if all files have been cleaned

Anyone with an idea of how to solve the issue?
