Project Description

Hi, I received the email below (I've edited it for security reasons) from Google and think that our website may have been infected with malware. I need someone to log on to the server, diagnose the problem and fix it. It is a Windows server and the website is php. Thanks, Seb Dear site owner or webmaster of [url removed, login to view], We recently discovered that some of your pages can cause users to be infected with malicious software. We have begun showing a warning page to users who visit these pages by clicking a search result on Below are some example URLs on your site which can cause users to be infected (space inserted to prevent accidental clicking in case your mail client auto-links URLs): http://topemployers .[url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] .[url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] .[url removed, login to view] Here is a link to a sample warning page: [url removed, login to view] We strongly encourage you to investigate this immediately to protect your visitors. Although some sites intentionally distribute malicious software, in many cases the webmaster is unaware because: 1) the site was compromised 2) the site doesn't monitor for malicious user-contributed content 3) the site displays content from an ad network that has a malicious advertiser If your site was compromised, it's important to not only remove the malicious (and usually hidden) content from your pages, but to also identify and fix the vulnerability. We suggest contacting your hosting provider if you are unsure of how to proceed. StopBadware also has a resource page for securing compromised sites: [url removed, login to view] Once you've secured your site, you can request that the warning be removed by visiting [url removed, login to view] [truncated to fit within vWorker character limit] Sincerely, Google Search Quality Team [truncated to fit within vWorker character limit]
