While visiting my site google says I have been exploited.

It tells me in the articles I read that I need to fresh install my server and even redo my website.

I reviewed my files and removed a .htaccess file it flagged but still they say I am dangerous.

Does this mean your server is at risk to.

Hello Mike Button,

I checked and was not able to find any of the malware sites listed in the safe diagnostic page in your site. If you have republished or restored files since the attack, they may be gone. You can follow our instructions on the Google Diagnostic Page for step by step on prevention and to notify Google so they can remove the warning page.

Best Regards,

Hello Mike Button,

To add a bit more information about your situation, I clicked on the "Advanced" link and retrieved the following from the Google page:

What happened when Google visited this site?
Of the 14 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 4 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2013-05-02, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2013-04-20.

You should be good to go since Google found nothing on 5-02. To be sure you will want to request reconsideration from Google.

Best Regards,
Scott M
