    I have been off from hubpages and hence couldnt even give reply to my other forum post which i have asked last week regarding domain registration. Anyways i am so pathetic at the moment- my blogger blog has been attacked for the second time by malware and i really dont know what to do. Earlier too it happened, but i was able to locate it in SiteMap of the blog and i deleted the widget but now again it has attacked and i am unable to locate it. I have asked for help in googleforums but till now i have not been able to get it resolved. Please help me out hubbers, if you can. I have such a tiny blog and i wonder why this is happening. Please help me

    Hi Shadaan,
    I'm so sad to hear that. Having malware on a blog is so annoying and they mostly come from widgets we think are reliable. I have encountered it myself with my WordPress blog some years ago. Now I'm very cautious when it comes to using widgets or other external features.

    I have found a blog that is giving advice on what to do if you are affected by this malware. It also contains the link to the Google forum Marisa already posted. … ruary.html

    I hope you can solve this issue. Wish you good luck!
