Webmaster tools - Diagnostics - Malware

Malware insertion has happened to me and 3 other websites I manage over the last 12 years which is not a large percentage but it was a bad experience and very time consuming.
My approach is to cooly and calmly hit the big red PANIC! button.
Basically prepare yourself for a shitstorm that will take large chunks of your time for very little reward.
However the malware manifests itself (usually a code insertion into your webpages) it is liable to re-occur so make sure you change the FTP codes (userIDs passwords) and anything else you can think of to reduce the risk of a reoccurence.

See the Google tools Help page on "Malware icon to indicate hyperlink opens in new tab" (new window) also Stop Badware if you get infected by Malware.

Check the screenshot of what the category "Malware" looks like (hopefully) from within a Webmaster Tools account (below)
