Google warns Internet users of such web sites, but many webmasters do not follow the Internet giant by that something is wrong.

And even if they are informed of the security incident, they miss to overcome the knowledge to solve the problem.

In the case of the webmaster is unknown the e-mail address, have browser warnings and alerts in the search engine a success rate of 54% and 43%.

The second step in the process is to give hints about the harmful content. Attackers often hide their files, which complicates the cleaning process. In the event Google tips on the infection to the webmaster e-mailed this made sure that the cleaning sheet was 62% faster than warnings without tips. The third step is to make sure that continues to clean the site. Google investigated and cleaned hacked websites and found that 12% had been hacked again within 30 days.
