  1. Loose FTP passwords . Either weak or generally saved in FTP client. When saved in FTP client, if the PC having FTP client is infected would allow virus to login to the FTP of the website and add malicious code.

    Its hell of effort to remove infected code and get it reviewed by Google.

  2. Actually it’s pretty easy task.. after taking off the JS code, add your site in webmaster tools and send review request from there, they take your site off their list in 2 odd days..

  3. Hi Deep,

    Check httpfox output of you will get surprised….However view source will not help much !!! 🙂 🙂

  4. I think they cleaned it up, it must be because of the JS script virus, it basically opens up an iframe with the trojan code in it..

    And there is one more type of virus / script which actually, works with only PHP files, it create a new htaccess rule which will redirect all the request to the trojan file and then it will get installed on the machines..

    So, this case must be one of them..

    But since I did not see in action, I won’t be able to comment much on it.
