False positive review


Recommended Posts

So I deleted the old website for my employer, and created a new website from scratch. The old website (on the same domain) was hacked and had weird pdfs uploaded. I deleted it all (even the host server is changed, only the domain name remains the same) and removed all possibilities for the hacker to add new pdfs, as I control it. Unfortunately the paths still exist in google cache, but they do not lead anywhere, I redirect all 404 pages (this pdf included) to my home page. Any recommendations to remove these links? I see constant requests (probably bots) going to these links, but it will always be redirected to homepage.

I'm seeing the redirect, and I've removed the block. Once an update occurs you should notice it no longer being detected. I'm not sure how to kill the links for good. The site is hosted through DigitalOcean? If so, I would start here: https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/spaces/how-to/add-and-remove-files/
