I posted a link to my personal website on Facebook. When I click the link to verify it works, I get a message from Safari saying the site I'm trying to visit may be hosting malware. The site it refers to is search-box.in, which is NOT my site. Does anyone know why I would be getting this? (I don't get the message if I visit my site directly).

If I open the site in Chrome I also get a warning when visited directly. Your domain may be blacklisted.

Don't worry, Your FB won't get hacked that easily. but for your safety, clean cookies, and web history, change your PWD into Lowhighnumeric case one... it's alright.

The issue was a hack to an insecure Wordpress plugin. The .htaccess file on my server had been changed. I corrected the issue.

Thanks all...

When you use third party software's in your website please note that you will upgrade the version to latest one to avoid vulnerabilities. It is a very important thing that you should look into.
