How To Check Your Website For Malware

As cybercrime grows and evolves, malware remains a constant weapon in a cybercriminal’s armory. Malware, short for malicious software, is created with the intent of causing harm to a website or computer. Website malware can be used to steal sensitive customer information, hold websites for ransom, or even take control of the website itself. In many cases, victims of malware may not realize they’ve been attacked until it’s too late.

Over one million new malware threats are released daily, so knowing what you can do to check for and combat malware is essential for all website owners. To protect your website, it is critical to take matters into your own hands and become proactive about website security. There are two primary ways to do this; the first is by learning to check for signs of malware manually. The second, and most effective, way to protect against malware is by using a website scanner that detects malicious content and automatically removes it. Follow these steps to check your website for malware, starting by recognizing the common symptoms of malware.
