Removed malware attacks

I feel like heaven when I got home just now after checking my website. I like to shout that I’m so happy and have peace of mind. Last weekend, I was so worried, so sad, and frustrated of what unexpected occurrence on my site.  It’s like a tragic to me, I feel like I’m part of those people who live in Queensland that experience cyclone Yasi and flash floods. 

Last Sunday as I was visiting some bloggers, commenting on their photos and following. At night, I’ve got an email from a new visitor on my site regarding my website page, I thought she is only tricking me, but she is just a very kind blogger who is concerned on my webpage. She said" she wants to return a visit and already had visited my other sites but this site she tries to visit had a warning “this site may harm your computer” a malicious malware, it means someone hacked and put virus on my site. First I don’t think of any negative feeling, but as we replied each other mails and tells me I should take quick action on my site as it will infect my visitors computer. That worries me so much, I don’t know what to do and I felt so bad thinking how to solve or remove the malware. I’m not in the mood and grumpy on the situation, as you all know as blogger our site is now part of our life, we are connected in here by posting everything about our lives, so I feel like hopeless that I can’t fix it, thinking if I make a new one I’ll start from the scratch, how hard it is to build up and be on the page rank of googles.  Especially I can’t be visible on the search engine, visitors who would attempt to visit me will ignore my site now, if they found and read the warning of search engine result.  What you will feel if your site happened like this to me?  Of course, the feeling is mutual or more than the feeling I have.

Its how many nights I can’t sleep, researching and reading all the articles, understanding the technical part of blogging problems that I’m not very interested but an interesting read for me, "how the hacker attacks the website".  On safe diaognostic of googles they found one site linking to my blogroll and a malicious malware hosted by another domain, so I removed them and that helps. I’ve also asked help of the blogger expert named Peter of the original Blogger Tips and Tricks how many times I seek his advice and help and webmaster tool forum as well, it helps me a lot.  They are very keen to help everyone; I had a few emails and response to my queries and they try to provide all the possible solution to the problem.

I’m a good reader now of all the troubleshooting but it is very confusing as I’m not knowledgeable much on the topic. I'm trying to be sure if it's my site is free so I test many times on webmaster tool on malware safe diagnostic and it’s doesn't say any warning. How cool is that? I thought it will take ages to fix it or if not I will maybe abandon my site and create a new one.

So today, I have peace of mind I can now sleep well,  life must go on no matter what problems and challenges may come, in the end is the solution but sometimes may take time. I quickly ring my hubby telling the news that my site was free of malware. He was so happy as well because I kept annoying him handling my custom laptop every time I've found helpful article to read on how to remove the malware, to explain how to do this and that, what an action to take and  follow the instruction.

After all the relief, I feel my shoulder is so light not carrying burden of worries and headache. So please, don’t hesitate to visit my site, it’s not dangerous nor will harm your computer, as per googles reviews and reconsideration of my site, it’s harmless now.

Godbless to everyone and let’s enjoy blogging.

That is interesting because i have a friend who says that happens when she tried to leave a comment on my blog and yet other people don't have the problem so we assumed it was my friend's computer not mine.
Another time I went to a regular blogger friend's site and i got that message too (but it didn't look official it looked made up) I clicked off her site but went back later and the message wasn't there. Something funny is going on but I don't think it is a virus.
