How to find Virus in my own website

January 19, 2011 at 09:40:24
Specs: Windows XP
I had just completed making a website and uploading to our host when I noticed that when I went to the website and checked the source codes there was a bunch of extra html that is not there before I uploaded it. I scanned my computer with Superantispyware (great program btw) and found some baddies. I am not sure if any of these could have infected my web pages. I also deleted all the pages from my host server. I scanned the pages on my computer and neither Avast or Super.. found anything, yet I am afraid to upload my pages again - since the code doesn't show up until after it is online (it is not in the source code when it is only on my computer).
How can I make sure that I am not still infected without having to upload my site again to my server and put it online - when it doesn't show up until I do?

P.S. My friend attempted to add my new site to Facebook, when it was online, and appearently started her virus scan - as it detected a virus.

If you would rather let someone with knowledge of rating a websites safety check?, you can join WOT (Web Of Trust)
http://www.mywot.com/
These guys are a great group of people who will break down your sites security rating.
They can advise you on everything you ask and more. Note: They use everyday pc users who give their time freely to help keep the web safe for everyone. And you will find most willing to help you.
Let them know that you think your site is infected and need it reviewed.
As website owner you get a 30 day free trial or join as a user and ask them to rate the site, this is free.
If they find issues be polite and try and follow any advice.
To add WOT to your browser type in your search engine:
WOT "browser name" addon.

Sorry I just noticed you have removed your site. My advice works only if your URL is online. Sorry about that.

I uploaded my site again (minus the menu.js, so now my sub-menus don't work) and the same thing is happening with the source code:
http://www.gioiellidicresci.com/

I checked it with both the sites you gave, and they say it is clean, so why do I have this unknown huge amount of code in my file, that only appears in the Veiw--> Source? - and why did my friend get a warning the other day, and my hosting provider send me an email saying they suspected my menu.js as having virus?

If you uploaded your site without the suspected menu.js in it, how would they find the virus? So both scans would be clean? I don't know the in's and outs of websites only where to test them.
Im thinking you should install a stronger AV program, more powerful than Avast? On your pc and test it again. Or go to the BullGuard website and get the 90 day free trial version and see how you go? Heres the link.

Hopefully someone who has some experience in websites might be able to offer you some advice. VirusTotal checks your site using 43 AV/Spyware programs so if it says its clean it should be.

What were the "baddies" SuperAntiSpyware found?
You might want to download MalwareBytes also?
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
They often find something the other left behind.

I have scanned with Trend Housecalls, Norton, Avast!, Malwarebytes, TFC, etc. and come up clean (SuperAntiSpyware found some adware in internet files) and I still get this code after my site goes online. I asked my host provider to check their servers and they say they have nothing.
I uploaded from another computer and still get the codes.
All scans on the URL say it is clean but Facebook and Zone Alarm say my site may be harmful.

Sorry im not sure? I saw your site on the WOT site and checked it out myself. I found it to be clean also? And except for the left to right scrolling on your site that the other WOT members already suggested you change, im not sure? Have you checked with Zone Alarm for false positives?

Site is back up with no funky codes.
Between my upload and cPanel something/some one was adding the codes.
I uploaded one of the pages to my own server and it did just fine with nothing getting added. So I wrote cPanel and told them it has to be them and to find the bad stuff and remove it - They did.

Also, I reduced the page to 900px - not sure if that will be enough?
Maybe you can check it and tell me.

Hi,
Glad to here your problems have been sorted. The site is looking good and jewelery looks good.Glad you took the advice we gave you.
I still noted you don't have a privacy policy, which you should add. As you take credit card details. That would explain the red WOT rating you have at the moment, I gave you full green except for privacy which I rated yellow.:-)
Hope that helps?

Your hosting provider should have safe guards set inplace to catch any attempts to put a virus or hack onto your page. If you are useing your own hosting servers i would recomend sweeping all of your files with more then 1 virus protection because sometimes one program will pick up a virus that another program will not.

If your still haveing issues you can visite me at http://keepitsimplepc.net and feel free to email me at keepitsimplepc@gmail.com
