    One of my sites has been found to have malware on it. It's really strange coz I don't really have all that much on there. There's no user comments allowed. Admittedly I don't monitor that site as much as I should. The only thing that I could think of is maybe a downloaded template hiding something....but strange how big G has only just reported it. Big G's diagnostic tool found only one instance on one page.

    So anyone got any idea's on how to track down this without tearing apart the site?

    The site is hosted on Godaddy and I'm using Joomla. Not using any security plugins but will look into that part in a moment.

    Godaddys servers got hacked again last week, thousands of sites were infected with malware,re-directs and viruses.(including mine!!!)

    Have a read here - Godaddy did not admit this to me when I challenged and was told my FTP settings on my own pc were compromised and stolen - if this was the case then my other sites surely would have been infected!! Load of BS's if you ask me - checked my log in cache and there is no log-in at all from my FTP but files have been changed by GD to try and resolve the issue.

    I rolled my site back a month and it is fine now - GD finally admitted they have tried to fix it "unsuccesfully" when i presented the evidence to them - a lesson to be learnt for all....GD ******** with your site without you knowing!~!!

    Nice one Delboy, well at least I know where to start looking. Gonna write them a "nice" letter and see if I can get my hands on a different server.

    Cheers
