    Hello All,

    My website got infected with malware and they created a folder in my hosting with statslive name..after i found out that my website is infected with malware i deleted this folder.
    Now i have 124,544 error pages showing in webmaster. i fixed 2k by submitting their , but now fixing these numbers seems tough, can anyone guide me how to fix them all ?

    i did submit my website abc.com/statslive to the webmaster tool.

    Thanks

    What do you mean by error pages? 404, soft 404, or something else?

    In your case this is good news, Google has no more access to the hacked pages and they've spidered 100k+ of them. Not easy getting google to spider 100k pages on any site quickly after a malware infection ;)

    Simply add the url pattern to robots.txt. For example -

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /statslive/

    You can use the URL removal tool, but it's not really necessary. The important thing is that the response code is 404. That's all that matters.
