    Ok guys so here is the problem, recently I bought a new domain and hosting for my new website. What I did do far is that I have installed my theme added several pages and some randome posts on it. Posts are not related to anything just random letters to see how things will look like.

    And today I got a message from Google Search Console Team sayin: This is the original email that I got.

    Social engineering content detected on mywebsite
    Google’s Safe Browsing systems have detected that some pages on your site might be hacked or might include third party resources such as ads that are designed to trick users into installing malicious software or giving up sensitive information. To protect your site’s visitors, your site has been demoted in Google’s search results and browsers such as Google Chrome now display a warning when users visit your site.

    How the hack is there social engineering content becouse It's my login to my wordpress website.





    So Is there anyone that can help ??? Don't really know what the problem is??

    When you go to the security issues section of your Search Console account, is there a sample URL and a last detected date? If both of those are absent, denoted by a "--", it's very possible that it was just a false positive on Google's end.

    The same thing happened on one of my client's sites, and all I did to remove it was submit an appeal saying that I checked every page and that the pages were clean.

    If you're wondering why these false positives happen, sometimes a site on the same server as your website can become compromised and cause this issue to show up.
