    Hello :)

    Have you verified that clients are using updated scripts that are not vulnerable? You may want to investigate and determine how the scripts are exploited with the help of a qualified system administrator to determine the best course of action.

    Thank you.

    Are your clients using software like Wordpress by any chance? If so, it's likely that their files have been infected by using insecure plugins.

    There is a great plugin (free to use) in the Wordpress Plugin Store called Wordfence. I suggest you recommend this to all clients using Wordpress.
