Easy Recovery For Sites Hacked With Spam or Malware

Recover hacked sites with Google Webmaster Tools

One of the top few concerns of a webmaster is the ever-persistent sense of insecurity. No matter how secure your site is, there will always be loopholes providing malicious programs an entry into your system, and thus enabling them to inject spam or malware. In spite of all preventive measures, the best and most practical thing to do in such an event is to recover your site as fast as possible so that the effect of the attack is neutralized / minimized. And with Google Webmaster Tools, you can now take a step forward towards easier and faster website recovery.

Help Portal

The Google Webmaster Tools team has been working to make recovery for hacked sites easier, and to streamline the cleansing process. For this purpose, a new dedicated Help Portal has been set up. It contains detailed and really helpful articles and tutorials, some accompanied with videos that explain each step of the recovery process.

In addition to this, Google will also notify webmasters when the software they're running on their site is outdated. A new feature has also been added to Webmaster Tools, called Security Issues (which we'll discuss below).

Security Issues

As per the new changes being made in terms of security, Google Webmaster Tools has added its bunch of features for webmasters, which now also includes;

  • Detailed information about the security issues on your site

  • Provisions to pinpoint the problem(s) faster through detailed code snippets

  • A new simplified process that allows requests for the review for all issues in one go

Note: These features are available only to sites verified with Google Webmaster Tools

Detailed information regarding security issues

On the Security Issues page in Google Webmaster Tools, you will see all malicious activity going on on your website, including spam or malware injected by hackers. You can see it all in on place. This information includes the one previously available in the Malware section, along with new one regarding spam activity. On the Security Issues main page, you can see the type of hacking, sample URL(s) (if available), and the date the issue was detected.

Pinpointing the problems

Whenever available, you will be able to see HTML and JavaScript code snippets from the hacked URLs and list recommended actions to help you clean up the specific type of hacking that has been identified.

Request review

The Requesting a Review process has been simplified as well. Once you�ve cleaned your site and closed the security holes, you can request a review for all issues with one click of a button straight from the Security Issues page.
