My Homepage is Hacked
It is frustrating for surfers to be exposed to malware while surfing. They should be protected against such malicious acts to the greatest extent possible, and by any means available, including warning notices by search engines. But it is equally frustrating for victimized webmasters, like me, to see that that the image of their sites is damaged due to actions to which they are not a part, although they take every measure and correct the situation immediately after they become aware of the situation. This is a double damage indeed: one caused by the cyber-vandals, and one by the search engines.
Although Google says that they notify webmasters of any such badware here, I did not receive any notification. As an affected webmaster, I hold the opinion that I should be warned by Google. This way, I would act earlier, and thus prevent numerous visitors from being exposed to malware. Having cleared my affected page, I am anxiously waiting for Google to remove the warning note hoping that this will not last long, and that the reputation, and credibility of my site will not be damaged beyond repair.
