How to Get the Google Attack Site Warning Removed

  1. Locate and remove all malicious code from your files.
  2. Update all scripts that are outdated. Note: If your script was installed via Fantastico in cPanel or Softaculous in LPCP please update the scripts there. Some scripts will provide a link to click for an automatic update. If there are no update links then you will have to update them manually by visiting the developer's website for instructions and files.
  3. Log into Google Webmaster Tools at If you do not yet have a Webmaster Tools account, you can create one for free.
  4. Click the "Adding a site" button and press <enter>.
  5. Enter your domain name in the text field that appears and press <continue>.
  6. Copy and paste your Meta tag in the text field. For example: <meta name="google-site-verification" content="mWMj8uAGTCbIozQtnEaswaPR8n-fA37TpLPIy3RPOl0" /> and press the "Verify" button. (*Do not copy the previous line as is, you will need to replace the meta tag with the verification tag provided to you by Google.)

Google will then send a crawler to verify that the content has been deleted and reinstate your website. This process can take up to 24 hours or even sooner. For more information please visit Stop Badware.
