It was brought to my attention today that people are getting some sort of a trojan or something on my website.  I went to http://www.avg.com.au/resources/web-page-scanner/ and scanned.  Below were the results:

 DANGEROUS: LinkScanner Online has found:
(SEO Exploit Kit (type 1337) : Exploit)

Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?

Thanks

If you have a clean copy of your website on your computer, upload it all again.  After changing your passwords for your website.

Well, the website is a forum.  There are tons of files and the database is pretty large as well.

That means you probably have a lot of work to do.  Start with changing all the passwords both for FTP and web hosting access and admin access.  Change every one that can get access to change files.  

There are only a few places it could actually be and be visible to the scanner.  It has to be in the operating files or the database, not any user files.  Go to the web site of the forum author and see if there is a common known vulnerability.  Then Google for the same thing if need to.
