    Is it a specific page? Because I don't get the same alert when I try to visit the front page.

    EDIT: Oops, yes I do.

    Take your site offline, SSH in and search for any files which have been modified recently.

    You might be able to fix it easily if you have a backup of the files (as long as the database is safe).

    If you use google webmaster tool check the link "security issues".

    Arboristsite (221,390 Discussions 4,470,092 Messages 54,063 Members) got hacked on VB4 because they had not removed the install folder. The Hack persisted through several re-installs and eventually resulted in them converting to Xenforo.

    The following files have been modified in the past 3 days:



    It looks like index.php was modified but after looking at it I do not see any obvious issues.

    Google also says the site is clean, so I don't know
    I would search the database itself for any references to the apparent malware domain (polarek.pl), see if someone has linked to a picture on that domain or something.
    Another scanner says OK, too - http://app.webinspector.com/public/reports/19944954

    After just spending 4 hours cleaning up hot linked images that were dead links back to 2008 I am looking for a way to disable future IMG code while preserving any remaining ones. It just makes sense in the long term to host them yourself.
