Website Malware Removal
Is your website suddenly exhibiting strange behaviours, including page redirects or pages displaying content not native to your website? There’s a chance your website contains malware, and its security may have been compromised. Other common symptoms of malware injections include:
- Website not loading (“this site can’t be reached” message)
- Most internal site links return a 404 (page not found) or critical error
- You can no longer login through your website’s dashboard
- Thousands of “mail delivery failed” messages in your inbox
- You are contacted by a third-party who has been impacted negatively by your website
With more than 1-billion malware programs launched to date, you could be among the thousands of webmasters dealing with malware injections every day. Hacked websites can sometimes result in legal issues, lost business, declines in Google rank positions, and a damaged reputation.
The term “malware” is a mashup of the words ‘malicious software’. Malware can take many forms including injected code in your websites files (php) or content into your websites database.
If your website employs a CMS, a third-party application, or uses modules known as “plugins”, there’s a good chance your attacker gained access through a vulnerability in one of these programs. In almost all cases we see, the cause for security breaches stem from outdated (or abandoned) software on largely unmanaged websites, or through control panel logins that use weak passwords.
The reasons behind why your website is targeted can vary widely. Hackers might be looking to redirect your site traffic to another website, create hidden links to assist with their search rankings, or can even create artificial login pages designed to steal personal information from unsuspecting users. Attacks can also impact your email accounts, as attackers can obtain access to your hosting control panel and use it to create email accounts that send spam to countless thousands of recipients.
