Hacked content detected on http://www.sugarlabs.org/

To: Webmaster of http://www.sugarlabs.org/,

Google has detected that your site has been hacked by a third party who
created malicious content on some of your pages. This critical issue
utilizes your site’s reputation to show potential visitors unexpected or
harmful content on your site or in search results. It also lowers the
quality of results for Google Search users. Therefore, we have applied a
manual action to your site that will warn users of hacked content when your
site appears in search results. To remove this warning, clean up the hacked
content, and file a reconsideration request. After we determine that your
site no longer has hacked content, we will remove this manual action.

Following are one or more example URLs where we found pages that have been
compromised. Review them to gain a better sense of where this hacked
content appears. The list is not exhaustive.



Here’s how to fix this problem: 1

Use the example(s) provided in the Security Issues report of Search Console

Look for other compromised pages or files on your site

Be sure to check your entire site, including the homepage, for any
unfamiliar content that could have been added. The malicious code might be
placed in HTML, JavaScript, or other files on your site. It can also be
hidden in places you might overlook, such as server configuration files
(e.g. .htaccess file) or other dynamic scripting pages (e.g. PHP, JSP).
It’s important to be thorough in your investigation.

Use the Fetch as Google tool to isolate the malicious content

Because some pages can appear one way to a user and another way to Google
crawlers, you can use the Fetch as Google tool to reveal some kinds of
hacking. Enter URLs from your site in the tool to see the pages as Google
sees them. If the page has hidden hacked content, the tool can reveal that

the changes made to your site.
