Website Malware infection
If your website has been infected by Malware,
it is generally because some vulnerability has
been discovered in the software
that controls your website.
This is because Websites are fast becoming a preferred
tool by cybercriminals in the distribution of malicious
software or malware; mainly because website
visitors are mostly unaware of the potential
threat as well as most malware is unobtrusive
so much so most users are totally unaware
their devices have even been infected.
Google and Website Malware infection

and 90% of malware is distributed by legitimate websites
without their owner’s knowledge, There are typicially
two main types of a Malware infection
1: The Firt type of Malware infection will change the content of the website (for example),
by adding additional fake pages to your website, with the intent of phishing
(tricking users into parting with personal and credit card information).
2: The second type of common infection typically involves,
Injecting malicious code (malware) that infects any device that visits the website,
this is becoming commonly known as drive by downloads where unsuspecting
visitors to the website have their devices infected with various kinds of malware
for criminal purposes.
