How to Clean & Secure Your Website from Iframe virus

This page is a starting-point resource – one we expect to evolve and grow over time – to provide webmasters with tips for ways to remove badware and other badware behaviors from your website and to help keep it free of badware in the future. Please note that this resource is by no means comprehensive or exhaustive and is intended only as a first step for webmasters concerned about badware. We encourage webmasters and hosting providers to research website security independently, beyond the suggestions offered here. It is the responsibility of individual webmasters and hosting providers to stay informed of news relating to website security issues.

There are three basic steps to maintaining a clean site:

  1. Identifying badware behavior on your site
  2. Removing badware behavior from your site
  3. Preventing badware behaviors in the future

Identifying badware on your site

The first step to keeping your website badware-free is to check for any badware or badware behaviors that may already be on your site. Badware is software that fundamentally disregards a user’s choice over how his or her computer will be used. Many sites with badware problems are not actually hosting badware themselves, but instead exhibit other “badware behaviors” such as automatic redirects or prominent links to badware on other sites. Often these badware behaviors are the result of hacking attacks or compromised third-party content, such as ads, rather than any deliberate actions by the website’s owner. You can learn more about badware and badware behaviors in our Guidelines.

When looking for badware on your site, especially badware due to hacking attacks, please remember to check the source code of your site as it is currently hosted on your web servers. Many site owners mistakenly look just at the website files they have on their own computers, and so miss seeing the evidence of attacks to the site itself.

If your site has been flagged with a malware warning by Google, check the Google Diagnostics page for your site for more information about the problems Google found.

Here are some common types of badware to look for:

1. Badware available for download on your site

Evaluate the software that you are offering for download – including any third-party applications that are bundled with your software – based on StopBadware’s Software Guidelines. If the software that you are offering for download violates our guidelines, then it constitutes badware.

If your software is bundled with third-party applications, you may also want to check whether the bundled applications install any dangerous or deceptive code. One method for detecting this is to download the entire software bundle onto a virtual machine and scan it using anti-virus or anti-spyware programs.
