The malware scan came back with results for my website. What does this mean?

The malware scan will notify you of any pages or links on your site that have been listed as distributors of malware (viruses, spyware, identity theft scams, etc.). If you are on these lists, many browsers and search engines will 'black-list' your site, meaning Internet users will not be able to see it in search results and it will be flagged if they navigate to your site. To get your site cleaned up and off of these lists, remove offending links and clean your website to make sure there are no viruses or spyware present. Another option is to let us help you. SiteLock offers its Expert Services to help you remediate these issues. If you believe your site has been listed in error, click the "Report False Positive" link at the top of the box and you'll be taken to a page with instructions to initiate the process of getting your site removed from the malware list.
