    when i go to my wordpress site a big red screen appears saying the site is dangerous and that it is a phishing scam. im only using wordpress to cloak links and i dont want people who click my links from instagram to be alarmed.

    The prompt


    Google Safe Browsing recently detected phishing on MYSITE Phishing sites pretend to be other websites to trick you.

    Are you sure there's no other malware in your theme/plugin?

    Test it yourself @ https://www.unmaskparasites.com/

    If it's just the cloaking that caused the red flag, either change the way you re-direct and request for a manual review through GMWT or change the domain.

    Was the site hosted in a shared hosting or VPS?

    If it says there's no firewall, most probably your theme might have been injected with a malware.

    Since the domain is already blacklisted, it's better to start with a fresh domain but this time make sure everything is protected.

    Install and configure this plugin on the new domain :

    Do you think it's ok to keep the same web host just change the domain name and install the plugin or should I start fresh?

    Are there other sites on your hosting IP that have issues?

    Shared hosting has it's place but you do want to make sure you are not in a bad neighborhood.

    Don't worry! the problem will be fixed.
    1. Go to google webmaster tool
    2. Go to security issues and checkout all of harmful contents
    3. Now clean all harmful contents of your site
    4. Then submit a request for a review
    5. Make sure it successful then wait some hours
    6. If everything is perfect, so your site problem is fixed and clean

    will the free version of wordfence security be sufficient or do i need the premium?
     
  14. Maybe any client hosted on your IP Range have a website infected and the IP is shared, is probably blacklisted by Google Safe Browsing, the best way is disable and affialiates, ads you have on your website and contact your hosting provider to check this out.

    If any client hosted on the same IP with you have with malware your IP probably is listed on blacklist. It isn't easy to detect, you need to do this step by step to understand what is happening and where is the problem and where he comes from.

    first go to ur hosting and check if there is any file name 7778899992323hwhjwejwe88we.txt. or also you can check error.log

    also check your index.php if there is any extra php code (these are base64 code). remove those base64 code.

    Check your site for malware, follow links on WMT to check.
