How to Handle the Google Attack Page

When you see the dreaded Google attack site warning, you should immediately open a support ticket from portal.eyhost.biz - Be sure to include your domain name because we will need to locate the virus that caused the issue and take steps to clean and secure your account.

Note: This warning will only happen in Firefox because Mozilla has a relationship with Google. Google cannot actually change your website. They can only give you a warning that they detected possibly malicious scripts on your site. You will need to get your account cleaned and secured before Google will remove the warning page.
 
Once the account has been cleaned and secured, please request a delisting through your Google Webmaster account. This is not something that EyHost can do for you. The excerpt below was copied from Google, and gives you step by step instructions to request a delisting.

From Google's Website:
 
http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=45432
Once you have reviewed your site and are sure it is clean, you can can submit a request for review. Note, you will need to verify site ownership before you can request a site review.
  1. Sign in to Webmaster Tools with your Google account.
  2. On the Dashboard, select the site you want.
  3. On the Overview page, click Request a review and follow the instructions.

Installing and Configuring ConfigServer Firewall : CSF

CSF is generally considered a more advanced firewall as there are more configuration options compared to other firewalls, while still being simple enough to install and configure that even novice administrators can use it.
This article demonstrates how to install and configure the CSF (configserver) firewall. CSF can be used on a wide range of Linux systems, including those running cPanel. 

rm -fv csf.tgz
wget http://www.configserver.com/free/csf.tgz
tar zxf csf.tgz
cd csf
sh install.sh

If you have APF + BFD you will need to disable it, you can use the following to do so:
sh disable_apf_bfd.sh
To configure CSF modify the config files in /etc/csf/ - or if you are running WHM you can modify the CSF settings in there. By default CSF opens the standard cPanel ports.
