If your website host or browser has blocked your Joomla! website – it means that your website could contain malware. You must utilize a Joomla which is known as “remove a malware tool” to scan your website and get rid of the malware.

Hosts will suspend accounts/websites containing malware. Browsers will block websites—including Joomla! websites— that contain malware, and display warnings such as: “The Website Ahead Contains Malware!” or “Deceptive Site Ahead.”

While this warning confirms malware infection, there are a number of indicators that could help you ascertain whether your site has been hacked.
