Visitors to my site get a virus alert saying my site is infected with "Exploit Blackhat SEA Type 1703." I have no idea what this is or how it there, and can not find any funky files on my site. What is it? And more importantly, how do I remove it?

Hi DrBob,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. What domain are you working with? The problem seems to be an exploit of a site to hide tons of backlinks in the actual HTML code. I would refer to this link to see if it helps explain the situation:

<a href="">Exploit Blackhat SEO Type 1703</a>

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thank you!
