Hi,

Someone alerted me to an infection at my website. When I attempted to visit the site, my AVG blocked it and identified the infection as Rogue Scanner (type 1007). I've dealt with an infected computer in the past, but don't know what to do about an infected website. I don't think the infection came from my computer, as I haven't uploaded anything in ages and when I do make edits, I make them at the host, not on my computer.

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

PS. FWIW, I also got an alert that it's type 1035, although it usually says 1007.

Well, I wouldn't know how to run a log on the website.

But anyway, I think I've got it corrected. My htaccess file was altered to redirect my site to an infected site when people came in through google, bing, etc.

The big question is, how did this happen?
