Website Redirects when Clicked from Search Engines

If your website is redirecting to an unknown site when people click on your listing in Google (or other search engines), your site is likely to have been hacked. These redirects are based on the http referer and as such the redirects won’t happen if you just visit the site directly.

In the meantime, it is vital that you avoid logging in or making any changes to the files/folders on the account so the necessary timestamps stay in place for the investigation to proceed as smoothly as possible. The Security team will notify you via email reply once the investigation has been completed.
