Website isn't safe

My client told me she gets error messages when visiting her site that the site isn't safe.  I checked it on http://safeweb.norton.com/ and sure enough I am getting 'drive by downloads" errors.   How do I fix this?  I checked and there doesn't appear to be "bad" files in the ftp.

This site is very old, like 5-7 years.

Did you check out those examples of "bad" links on your web site on the Norton Safeweb page?  They're pretty specific.  Is that stuff all there intentionally but being miscategorized by Norton somehow?

If you think your site has been incorrectly rated, check out this page:

http://safeweb.norton.com/help/site_owners

You can try to get it de-listed.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

I don't think it has been inaccurately rated if client got warning about site being unsafe.  I just don't know how to "fix" the site.  That is more what my question is.

We use Trend Micro OfficeScan here and it occasionally incorrectly flags safe sites as "dangerous".  It happens.

Seems like you should be able to tell from the specific "dangerous" link examples on the Norton page whether or not the referenced content should be there on your site.  If the site has in fact been hacked or something, I can't advise you since I know nothing of how complex your site is.  I defer to someone else on that.  If it was my company's site, I would just nuke the site and re-upload the content and we'd be done.  Our site is very simple though, nothing complicated about it.

Good luck.
