malware cleaner

    Question

  • A tool to remove malware from an infected page would be helfpul. The webmaster center fall update says:


    "With the updated tools in Webmaster Center, if you have any malware issues on either your own pages or on outbound links, you will be able to:

    • ...
    • Read helpful advice in Help on how to fix the problem.
    • ..."
    Unfortunately, that's not the case. The help section doesn't tell advice on how to fix the problem.

    Thank you for your input. With multiple ways of injecting malware onto a page, do you have some ideas on how a malware cleaner should work?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for the response. Are you infected with malware now? Have you read our malware guide located at http://help.live.com/help.aspx?mkt=en-us&project=wl_webmasters? The guide is actually listed under "remediating detected malware" within the last bullet before the "related topics" section.

  • well, I'm a noob. I never made a wegpage before and I only started doing it as I needed a page for my band

    first of all, the tool should identify where exactly the malware is located (database/files/lines in the source-code). I don't have an exact idea, where it could be and I have no idea on how exactly the tool could remove the malware
