  • Baba Yaga

    Baba Yaga is an entity that haunts the dreams of children and a common threat that parents use when their children misbehave in Slavic countries across Eastern Europe.

    But in the world of malware, BabaYaga is a form of malware that can update itself, use antivirus functionality and more. Much like the mythical creature, BabaYaga malware has the potential to haunt Joomla/WordPress or, in fact any PHP site administrators and IT support staff.

  • Cleaned your site? Fix Malware warnings too

    You have done a great job by cleaning your recently hacked file? Excellent, but you not finished yet!

    If you were blacklisted by Google, McAfee, Yandex (or any other web spam authorities), your site is showing various malware warnings to your visitors, wich can be a big turn down factor. Luckily you can request a review after the hack has been fixed.

    Google is now limiting repeat offenders to one review request every 30 days.

    Be sure your site is clean before requesting a review!

    To remove malware warnings on your site:

    • Call your hosting company and ask them to remove the suspension.

      • You may need to provide details about how you removed the malware.
    • Fill in a review request form for each blacklisting authority.

      • Google Search Console
      • McAfee SiteAdvisor
      • Yandex Webmaster
      • Norton Site Security
      • (any other similar service backlisting your site)
    • The review process can take several days.
