    Hello

    Recently, I've got "Deceptive site ahead" warning while visiting my website.
    I contacted the hosting provider and they removed malware files from my site.

    According to "Google Search Console", I found 2 folders "postepay" and "signin" as deceptive in my document root. These folders are unknown to me so I removed them.

    However I found "postepay" folder under /home/user/. Please see the image for reference.

    What should I do about it?

    Thanks.

    Sure, delete it. Also, check all the files from /public_html/, change your passwords, update your scripts.

    I've changed all passwords.

    Is there any easy way to scan malicious content in my /public_html/ as there are so many files in there ?

    Thanks for the help.
