On September 6th, Google announced a new set of tools to help webmasters keep their sites secure. Google continues to lead the way in helping to make the web more secure. This new set of tools is an invaluable resource for any webmaster committed to keeping their site safe and secure for visitors.

If you’re a webmaster, it’s critical to keep an eye on these issues, since it can be an early detection of a site infection.

This type of issue can instantly harm your credibility and site ranking.
If you haven’t yet done so, you should register your site with Google Webmaster Tools. From there, you can have Google alert you if anything suspicious pops up on your site or if unknown files have been located.
