Virus Scanning (Drive-by Downloads)

What is it?

If your site has been compromised by hackers, they may be using your website to distribute virus-infected software to your visitors without your knowledge. Your visitors may be getting software installed on their computers when they visit your site without knowing that is happening.

What is the impact?

Your visitors will have their computers infected with viruses after visiting your site. Of course, this causes frustration, anger, and distrust with your visitors.

How does SiteLock protect me?

SiteLock's scanner reviews all files and applications on your website against industry and proprietary databases of virus software. If we identify a virus on your site, we notify you immediately and can help you remove it.

What can I do about it?

Use a website scanning service that includes virus scanning, such as SiteLock.
