Why is malware a serious problem for websites?

The ill effects of malware are obvious from the user's perspective, but this can also be incredibly damaging for businesses and organizations, especially if sensitive data has been stolen. Users show little confidence in businesses that fail to protect them from viruses and data breaches. Infection can destroy your hard-earned reputation, leaving you forced to pick up the pieces as your most loyal customers and clients flee for the competition. Problems with search engine optimization (SEO) and website rankings are also likely, as blacklisting is a common response to malware infections.

Can malware be removed easily?

Malware can be difficult to remove without targeted tools or expertise. First, it must be detected, and, with some especially sophisticated attacks, this can prove surprisingly challenging. Once detected, the malware can be removed manually in a lengthy process that involves identifying the source, pinpointing commonly used attacker syntax, and finally, removing the infected files. Both detection and elimination can be expedited with file transfer protocol scans, which inspect and clean at-risk files before uploading these to the host server.

How can I report malware removal from my website to Google?

To limit the impact of a malware infection on SEO, you'll need to deal with Google warnings. This begins with removing the malware and addressing vulnerabilities. You should be completely confident that your website is malware-free before you proceed. At this point, you can submit a request to Google to complete a malware review. During this process, you may need to verify site ownership and indicate which steps you've taken to resolve ongoing security issues.

After website malware removal, what comes next?

Malware removal is only the first step. If not promptly addressed, vulnerabilities that led to the most recent infection will almost certainly cause problems in the future. To prevent these, use a website monitoring tool that includes a vulnerability scanner to determine where the greatest risks lie. A web application firewall (WAF) is also essential, as this can both monitor and filter traffic, and, most importantly, block malicious requests. To prevent or address further blacklisting, continue to check Google search results and take a close look at the Google Transparency Report.
