Beware of Google AdSense Hackers Using Their Code On Your Site

A DigitalPoint Forums member found a bunch of modifications to his site, including AdSense code: the code on the page was not his.

This isn't the first time this happened and it's probably not the last. Some precautions:

  • Check your AdSense earnings; if they drop, there may be a problem. Then, check that the AdSense ID is correct on your website.
  • Contact your hosting company to see if you can trace who hacked the site. It's worth a try.
  • Contact Google with the new AdSense code and inform them that this is not your code. The code may either be someone else's or the hacker's himself: Google will make a decision about whether or not to disable the account.

There are no guarantees that anything will be done but you can always report violations to Google AdSense Help.
