Case Studies: Fixing Hacked Sites
By Google Webmaster Central (email@example.com) on 2015-02-18
advanced, beginner, hacked sites, intermediate
Webmaster Level: All
Every day, thousands of websites get hacked. Hacked sites can harm users by serving malicious software, collecting personal information, or redirecting them to sites they didn't intend to visit. Webmasters want to fix hacked sites quickly, but unfortunately recovering from a hack can be a complicated process.
We're trying to make the process of recovering from a hack easier for webmasters with features like Security Issues, Help for Hacked Sites, and a section of our forum just for hacked sites. Recently we talked to two webmasters with hacked sites to learn more about how they were able to fix their sites. We're sharing their stories with the hope that they might provide ideas to other webmasters who have been victims of hacking. We're also using these stories and other feedback for improving our documentation for hacked sites to make the process easier for everyone going forward.

The notion is that this is a flow from product owner to development, with the product owner responsible for determining what needs to be done and the developers how to do it.
