WHAT IS SYMANTEC'S MALWARE SCANNING?
Protect your customers from hackers
Malware is short for malicious software. It has been designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner's informed consent. Hackers exploit security weaknesses on your server to gain access to your website and install malicious code. Hackers can compromise your website to spread viruses and steal sensitive data such as credit card details. Daily website malware scanning shows customers you are committed to keeping them safe.
What the service scans
The website malware scanning service is activated automatically when your business has been authenticated. There is nothing to download or install for you or your customers.
The service does not scan every web page on your website, but reviews an optimal number of pages to identify malicious activity. It does not scan your network or search for malware on internal desktop computers or scan attachments or internal web pages that require sign-in.
Email alerts if Malware is detected
If malware is detected, your Norton Secured Seal will be deactivated and an email alert sent to warn you that your website has been compromised by malware. Once all Malware has been deleted you can request that your site be rescanned within 24 hours. Once you’re good to go, your Norton Secured Seal will be reactivated.
