My website attempts to infect visitors with a virus


Your website attempts to infect visitors with a virus. You search your server and cannot find any viruses executables to account for it.


Check last few lines of web page for obfuscated javascript code, as in the following example:
    <script language=JavaScript>
    function dc(x){
    var l=x.length,b=1024,i,j,r,p=0,s=0,w=0,t=Array(63,49,46,22,39,35,15,23,8,28,0,0,0,0,0,0,2,25,55,54,30,40,13,57,14,12,53,47,43,
Remove the offending lines as you find them on any pages.

With SSH command line access, you can find additional infected pages with a command similar to the following:

    grep -r "function dc(x)" . | awk -F: '{print $1}'
