Google Malware Hack

John Mueller from Google said that generally Google is quicker at processing malware reviews than hacked content reviews. John said on Twitter "Malware reviews are generally really fast; hacked content can take a bit longer."

Malware is when you have some some of malware installed on your web site, removing it and submitting a reconsideration request will reverse that manual action. Hacked content is when someone hacks your site and injects content on new or existing pages, removing the hacked content often takes longer and when you submit a reconsideration request, that review can take longer.

Either way - both are fairly quick to resolve with Google search. Sometimes a day or so.
