    Hi guys.

    I just made a good looking website, and I was waiting for some good rankings. It's a quite new site, 2 months old. Suddenly i got a webmaster tools message.. It was saying my site got suspicion of hacking, and they gave me a category page as example. It said a hacking party was 'cloaking' or using 'hidden text' on my site. I have checked everything, even with Google tools, and nothing saw any hacking activity. I do not get any hacking message in the search results. Rankings are still the same.. Should i be worried? Or do something? Don't know what to do next..

    Greetings,
    Mark

    I just have the plugins everyone has, w3 cache, SEO Yoast etc.. On several websites they say i can send a request to google to check again. But when i go to my webmaster tools page on security, they say there are no problems.. :S

    View the Page Source of that example page they give to see what is wrong with it.

    If you have a nulled theme, you can bet that they have something hidden in the theme.

    I really can't find anything in the source code.. Everything seems good, no hidden url's or text. When i check why the page is hacked on a google tool, they say nothing is found.. very strange :(

    Even WordFence can't find any problems, so I think this Google message was wrong or something

    its used to encode data and treat it in base 64 representation

    for exemple

    today i am going nowhere in google once encoded become ¶‡ZÊ&¦‚ˆ§‚z0…êÞŠx(¢ ^

    so basicaly you can hide some stuffs in,maybe. some themes use but without intention to do something wrong., you see something like base64>45dfgv5....... when its used

    but if you see nothing with WS130SN links posted, you shouldn't worry to much
