(False) Positive Phishing Reports for Symantec Norton’s

Posted on Posted in Google

We helped a friend recently whose site had been compromised. Some one had hacked into some of the php code and inserted some encrypted malicious code. After we located it and terminated all the malware and reinstalled WordPress the site was good to go. On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 2. The problem we now face is ‘how do we let Norton know? Do we call him?

The web is kind at times and I found this well hidden gem through a post on on of the forums on their website. Normally that would take as long as it sounds, but I lucked out. I doubt it’s well publicized so I thought I’d share.


Stay tuned.
