My website contains dangerous code!

    Hi all,

    Recently my website has been rejected from two advertising networks. The reasons?
    SEMrush
    Ad network 1: "Unfortunately we are unable to approve your site because it has a permanent redirect to another site. Let us know when you remove dangerous html code from your site we will review it again.". I asked then for a better explanation and they sent me the following screenshot .
    WARNING.jpg

    Ad network 2: Site denounced as dangerous by Antivirus ESET NOD32


    From all this I could conclude my website is not standing in a good position.

    I have checked my website with this tool http://www.internetofficer.com/seo-tool/redirect-check/ and it confirms the domain has no redirection.

    I have downloaded McAffe Internet Security Site Advisor (pain in the *ss) and could visit my website without warnings whatsoever.


    Website info: Joomla 1.5 based, with several plugins and components installed.

    Any advice? What to do? How do I know what is the code that is causing this issue?

    THANKS!

    Maybe your site has a minor trace of malicious code.

    You are using Joomla 1.5 which has many security vulnerabilities. The Joomla community has asked everyone to upgrade for security and support reasons. You site may have been attacked. If there is any malicious code I would be able to remove it as well as upgrade your website to the latest version of Joomla.

    You may wish to talk to your hosting provider. We have always done this stuff for our clients. If not, hire someone.

    We can advise you to perform the following steps in order to protect all your files & whole server from further attacks :

    - check your local computer for Trojan/Viruses - and install reliable AntiVirus to your computer in case it wasn't installed . Your computer could be infected by some malicious software that use your cached passwords in order to attack scripts/accounts in the internet;
    - check up all your sites, erase and update weak passwords to more strong ;
    - you can use online scanners also . The following ones can be used :

    Additionally, we kindly ask you to make your own backups for security reasons, along with our server backups.
