    Where do you see the hacked message? If you see it in archive.org or on anywhere where there is a serious change of past penalty or hacking or dis-reputation etc. , I would not touch such a domain with a barge pole for a PBN blog even leave apart a money site.

    "This site may be hacked." means "Don't touch this."

    from the google's result, there's no penalty. I guess probably I was using the previous website company name in the about page. but the my new content is slightly different from the original.

    I had registered this expired domain a real business company, use the existing about page of their name and address whatsoever but added my new contents. I am sure no penalty with clean backlink profiles. But when search for this company name, it appear that google know the company has been permanently closed. Guess this is where it may be suspicious.

    This has nothing to do with penalty, you can easily fix this.

    Solutions are different from cases to cases, here are what you can do:
    1. Contact your host, they will be able to solve this (this is what i do)
    2. Add your site to webmastertool (in case you really want to do this), there should be a message there. If not you can contact them directly.

    I had this problem with 1 of my PBN, and it turns out my PBN really was hacked, i contacted hostwinds and they fix it in a snap lol.

    Anyway, good luck dude.

    I think, its not a penalty. May be its your hosting problem.

    I would say using their contact details and information has got to be a big red flag for you at some point. Not sure if it's what is actually causing your current issue or not, but it for sure will be an issue in the future, especially if you are in the US as well, could very easily get you in legal trouble using someone else's real address and name for the contact information.

    Just a food for thought and note. The SAPE sites (I know yours is PBN but what I am saying will make sense in a second) which Google has discovered and are using hidden or invisible links shows that notice as well. So I believe G might have somehow caught your domain considering it shows no malware notice in GWT.
