If Google® deems your site to be “suspicious”, the will blacklist it from their search engine. Learn about and fix issues before that can happen.
Who is it for?
Bloggers who use customizable content management systems such as WordPress, Drupal, or Joomla.
Social Web Sites that let users publish, share or distribute content directly to the site and other visitors.
Web Site Tonight and Quick Shopping Cart users who customize their sites with third party scripts and widgets.
Web Site Developers who want to show clients that their sites are safe for visitors.
Is it for you?
Do you have input fields in your site?
Input fields, such as comments or sign-up forms, are a hacker’s playground. If your forms aren’t configured to handle content securely, hackers can submit malicious data that can deface your site or obtain possibly sensitive information.
Do you link to documents?
Links can give malicious users more information than you intend, and hackers can use improperly formatted links to redirect visitors to phishing sites.
