My website is showing Phishing attack ahead or reported attack page how to rectify it ?

This kind of attack is Gumblar attack. When you vist attacked website,the harm code in that website will read your password informations stored in your PC (such as FTP password information used in Filezilla ),and send it to the hacker.

The hacker can use this information(FTP password) fetched from your PC and login into you website and put harm code into your site,so that you site also become as vulnerable site.

Now these kind of sites are detected by google and blocked from viewing in browsers such as Firefox,so when your site is attacked with Gumblar ,you will get warrings like Reported To Be Attacked in your site instead of your site display.
