    Hi, if you could help me with this problem i have i would be very grateful... I have this site couple of months and two days ago when i went to my domain a completely different site came out and i couldn't log into my wp-admin and i was devastated. I turned to my hosting for help and they told me this :

    Our Abuse department has received a report regarding phishing content being hosted in my (my account code) , an account under your control. We have disabled site access for this account to prevent further complaints, and have provided a list of the reported content below.

    In order to remove the restrictions we have placed, you must resolve the security issue and remove the listed malicious content. Please note that repeated reports of malicious content on the account within 60 days of an initial notice will lead to further action being taken, including permanent suspension upon failing to professionally clean the account.

    Once you have taken steps to secure your account from the reported content, please reply back to this ticket to request a review.

    Reported Content:

    - bla bla bla
    - bla bla bla

    As they told me i removed the reported content through they pointed through C Panel, after what they made a review in which they said everything is fine and they enabled my site access and the site seemed to came back to normal as it was before. But like i said it seemed, cause my PA and DA were 1 before this happened and now the values are 17 with 10 which means something is definitely wrong! I read so much about site hacking, phishing content, malicious content, malware etc. and now i'm totally confused what should i do... I ran every possible security scan and 90 % or more shoved that my site is clear except google who said suspicious site, may contains bla bla bla. I i'm sure that my site isn't ok and that the people who did this have left some back door to compromise my site when ever they need or feel like ... If you could give me any advice someone with experience like this or anyone what should i do and how can i clean my site completely and everything moves on normal. I have just finished internal linking completely before this happened and i have never made external or backlinking whatsoever. I am open to any suggestion!

    Thank you!!!

    You are unlikely to ever recover the credibility of your domain. The search engines will never forget that you were a phisher. I think the story you tell is credible to a web host. But databases don't store anecdotes or explanations. Think of it as getting the biggest penalty in the game of ranking. Loss of down and half the distance to the goal for you.

    What security plugins are you using?
    Update your theme, plugins and wordpress core files to the latest versions.
    Install Wordfence and run a scan.
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/
    Check your server for any suspicious files/directories.

    I cannot help you right this moment due to being busy and the time it may take but this is something I'm well-versed in.
    If you want to add me on Skype at triumphware, you can do so.
    I will contact you when I have free time which very well may not even be today but if you haven't figured out by the time I do contact you, I'll be glad to help.

    They are wrong, once you have cleaned up your site you can put in a reconsideration request and malware review to google.

    Google Securi Scan ansd you will find a company who provide scanning and clean ups of websites that have all sorts of malware on it. Its very easy and quick to get your domain name sorted, and certainly not the end of the domain name as someone suggested. Many wordpress sites get hacked and Google will advise potential customers that the site may be hacked. When thats cleaned up and you submit this to Google it takes a few days and the site will be fine.

    Your site can be hacked viathe theme, out of date plugins or many other reasons, try and keep the platform aswell as plugins up to date, and also wise to take regular backups so that you can simply install a clean working version of the site quickly.

    Phishing can also be considered by a plugin which tracks an visitors IP adress and stores them somewhere, some hosting or domain services are looking for that too, however that is completely dumb since many plugins do that.

    Hey guys, in this couple of days i managed to clean my site completely and i installed Wordfence as my security plugin. I did all kind of scan, internal and external and all were the same, my site was finally clean and safe! So i asked Google for a review and they replied within 24 h. and confirmed that it's all good, i have no longer malicious content and they removed the warnings about the site so i guess now i can start over fresh! :eek::D

    I am new at SEO and this was my first post of any kind and it was about asking help, i hope in the future i will be helping someone. :)

    Big Thank You to everybody!!! :thumb:
