How to remove and prevent malware infection from a website


HI Amira, 

Get a new and updated and good antivirus software for your website and scan your data server with it, I personally recommend you using kaspersky internet security 2012, buy a genuine version (server version) and then update it regularly, it scans the whole network and PC and i got my system 100% error free, It is simply best. It also defends my PC from all the attacks and all the Malwares.

I simply fall in love with it. Implementation of these security services can help to almost completely eliminate attacks and Malwares of your web sites and other data.

Make sure you update your antivirus software regularly, then only your network will be protected from latest threats on Internet.

To try this, go to VirusTotal Free Online Virus Scanner.

In there, select “URL” and then enter the full address of your website like without quotes “”. Press Enter or click “Scan it!” to begin checking your website. Wait until the scan is complete and you should see something like this:


The report shows you the current health status of your website whether if it’s infected or not. To avoid getting your website infected, try monitoring the health of your site. One way of doing this is to search your site on Google in this format without quotes: “site:[your website URL]”. For example, “”.


This will allow you to see what is being indexed on your site. Aside from this, you should use a good password.
