    Hey,

    I just received this on 2 of my domains located on 2 different dedicated :

    I know it is fake as i received it on an address which google shouldn't know about. I have no idea what is the purpose of the message, and there is no confirmation on the webmaster tool. I avoided to click on any link of course but this seems nasty. If you have insights would love to hear your input.

    a friend of mine got this once, and yes there was a phising site there so i suggest that you login to your site by cpanel or ftp and check for thoose files in the mail, if they are there delete them and go through your security, if they are not just ignore it

    Have you made sure your site really isn't hacked?

    It's not fake. From the research I just finished, it has to do with a vulnerability of the Apache server you are sharing with other sites. It would be a good idea to talk to your webhosting support.

    How is it fake when the link goes directly to google? It sounds amateurish, but it could be google

    It's not fake, and looking at the site, you should definitely know why you are receiving the email. Basically all Google is saying is they have deindexed the site until you get it resolved, and since you think they don't know about the website (lol) then you obviously aren't relying on any search traffic so I'd just carry on about your business and ignore it.
