Website keeps getting infected with maleware Closed

Earlier this year one of the websites i made for a friend got infected with malware. The site redirected to other suspicious websites if you clicked on any links. I have cleaned the site from malware a few times and made a fresh wordpress install but nothing worked. It's always coming back and the hosting provider takes down the website. I honestly don't know what to do anymore. The malware probably came on to the site as a theme I have installed wasn't up to date. I contancted the support of the theme and they said they fixed it for me. This was 2 months ago, at first everything seemed to be good but now it came back again. Do you have any suggestions on what I could try to fix this? Thanks!

Look into Wordpress hardening as well as getting behind a WAF. And make sure all the admin users have updated their passwords to an actual secure password.
