Hi, my client perigeaux.com has a hacked site. I’ve restored from a backup a week old, but it still seems prevalent with Google search results. I’ve run Anti-Malware and quarantined a few files – do I need to delete them? Can you take a look and see if I’m still getting foreign character pages in Google Search results?
If you quarantined the threats then you may just need to request a review in Google Webmaster tools. It will take a little while before the search results are re-indexed to reflect the changes you have made. You don’t need to delete the quarantine records, but if google comes back and says there is still malware on the site or the site is still actively redirecting then you need to keep looking for more threats.
Just wanted to stop by and let people know Eli is the real deal. I own and operate Reviewboard Magazine (Reviewboard.com) and we are in a weird spot in the food chain when it comes to product reviews. Because we do reviews on just about everything consumer related we fall into the mainstream consumer publication category of which we are actually the 2nd most popular in the United States. Go figure. We ended up getting a web STD and google crippled our website by putting up the malware stop page and listing our website as a malware site. Our advertising was stopped (Adsense) and things came to a crashing halt.
NO ONE knew how to fix this situation properly and we tried. I posted here and ELI responded within a few hours. I trusted him and gave him admin access to our website and he did not disappoint. This man is a saint. He fixed the issue I was having with his plugin, he removed all the malware issues, and we were able to submit a request for review with google... it was successful and we are now back in action.
Without Eli we would have had to rebuild our web server VMs, our database VMs and cut, copy and paste every article we had to make sure we didn't have any malware. This would have taken a month and hurt us badly. I can't tell you how grateful I am to Eli and his plugin. We are forever in his debt. If you haven't donated for this plugin, you should really go do that now. His time is worth every cent, and we will be donating regularly to help his efforts here. -- Review Crew
I used this tool on two websites I administrate - it worked great ... I will definitely have my clients donate to this plug in... keep up the great work!
