I’m not seeing it or maybe you figured it out. However, I did notice the dreaded IE image link blue border on your social media icons and home link (or whatever it’ll be); just an observation on passing by. Sorry I couldn’t help you otherwise.
1) If you are still seeing this link (while no one else is), try clearing your browser cache ([ctrl]+[f5] does it in most browsers).
2) Did you ever add Google addWords (or a similar script) to your page? If so, that might be what you were seeing (and that would mean you weren’t hacked).
However, if you are at all unsure, you should definitely take steps to make sure your site is secure:
As @ChrisBurton says, make sure your own computer is clean, too (do that _first_).
— change all passwords **now**.
— check your server’s error/access logs for unusual activity.
— make sure there are no unusual files on your host (especially inside your web root).
— make sure all the usual files haven’t been changed (compare them to your (hint,hint) **backups**).
— review any scripts that handle user input. Make sure you **do not trust user input** (always _validate_ and _sanitize_).
— if you find any problems, or are still unsure, **contact your host for help**.
It was a malware from my end. It was a chrome add-on, (malware in disguise) that I added. I actually googled ‘Coupon DropDown’ and read more about it. I removed all the suspicious add-ons, uninstalled all the suspicions programs and cleared all my caches and cookies. And it came back to normal. I was afraid already.
We used to have this problem. Every time we thought we removed, it would just re-install itself.
Traditional defenses are no longer enough to defend against the new breed of cyber-attacks that cut across communication channels and take place over multiple stages. IT security organizations must implement a defense-in-depth strategy with layers of network and endpoint security defenses. Failing to do so can prove costly; in fact, it can bankrupt a company.
We did the following, for the following for my website.
