    I would NEVER install a nulled theme. Just think about it. What’s the motivation behind the person who is investing his time into nulling the theme and then giving it out for free. In most cases, it’s done just to build a botnet of infected sites.

    If you think your WordPress site is hacked or infected. Follow this guide (currently the most complete wordpress malware removal guide on the web).
