Solution- This site may harm your computer – Google Search Page

If one of your blog or website is showing the message “This site may harm your computer” in google search page. Then there is no need to worry, because it is not a penalty or any penalization. This is because Google bot has detected any malicious code in your blog content and that is why it is showing this error message in search engine. Normally this occurs when you add any html code from third party advertisement websites or any other websites.

For example this happened with one of my blogger blog, where i was running Bidvertiser Ads on that blog. One day when i saw the report in my StatCounter account. That day there was no traffic record for my blog. Then i tried to open the blog and i got a alert message.

    Hi Bilal

    Those security message can also appear if your site is hacked and some malicous hidden codes (usually encrypted codes) is inserted by hackers.

    Removing the codes can help one remove those warning message but loophole still exists and hackers may get again.

    To get completely rid of it we provide hack recovery services at hackedrecovery.com.
