[resolved] Chrome blocked my blog (5 posts)

    Hello everybody,
    So the problem is that when I try to access my website using Chrome, it says malware has been detected. I tried other browsers and didn't have any difficulties.
    I've never had this kind of problem and I don't know what's wrong with my blog (everything is legit).
    Could it be the fact that I don't have the latest WordPress update installed?
    What I've found out so far is that Google offers you a "Request for review" option if you think that the problems have been solved. It's under the webmaster tools menu, where you can also find the "infected URLs". In addition, this is the report chrome generates: https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?client=Firefox&hl=en-US&site=http://www.antonbenet.com/


    The blog I need help with is http://www.antonbenet.com.

    Thanks Andrew!
    I've updated WordPress to the latest version, as well as Jetpack.
    What's next? I don't know how to install a website firewall nor update my cPanel.

    I reported it to Google and they removed the malware warning.

    If Chrome was warning that malware was on your site it would not have been due to out of date WordPress. Old WordPress just means your site is more vulnerable to being attacked/compromised, so make sure to update as soon as you are able to when new versions of WordPress are released.

    In any event, though, glad to hear the issue was resolved :)

    Insofar as a website firewall is concerned, this is a really good step to take. There are a number to choose from ranging from free plugins you can install and set up yourself to something like this:
