I've been asked to look at a website...
Actually it happened more than once-I got an email from a prospective client ~from~ my website complaining of the same thing once.
It could just be the contact form which was hacked, but depending on other factors (such as any CMS script you are using or if passwords or other details are stored on the server) the entire server could be hacked too.
At the very least, you must take the contact form offline as soon as possible, and ideally you should review the entire site content and revert to a known backup on a different server.
Thanks for this.
I suspected that it relates to some sort of script. It also shows this text;
"You can learn more about malware and how to protect yourself at StopBadware.org. "
Unfortunately the site owner is a friend of one of my existing clients so I need to look after them!
I'll suggest completely cleaning the site.
