How to request a malware review

 3:58 pm on Jun 16, 2009 (gmt 0)

My site is now marked as distributing malware.
After searching of what can cause this, nothing found.
On help page Google state this:

"Once you have reviewed your site and are sure it is clean, you can can submit a request for review. Note that you'll need to verify site ownership before you can request a site review.

On the Webmaster Tools Home page, select the site you want.
In the Parts of this site may be distributing malware message, click More details.
Click Request a review.
We'll review your site and, if we determine that it doesn't host or distribute badware, we'll remove the identification from the search results"

The problem is that I can't find "Parts of this site may be distributing malware message" on my WMT account.
All my Google traffic is lost.

What can I do now?

First verify ownership and then request a review. G responds within hours in most cases, provided it was an error.

Some website hacks are cloaked in various ways. For example, if you go to the page by direct navigation you do not see the hack - it only shows up if you are coming from a click on search results.

There are also lots of good resources linked from this article on Google's Blog:
