Webmasters help for hacked sites - Google

Google has some help for those who have had their site hacked:
Quote:
Every day, cybercriminals compromise thousands of websites. Hacks are often invisible to users, yet remain harmful to anyone viewing the page — including the site owner. For example, unbeknownst to the site owner, the hacker may have infected their site with harmful code which in turn can record keystrokes on visitors’ computers, stealing login credentials for online banking or financial transactions.

Thanks for the resource. One of our hosting accounts just got hacked last week. We're pretty sure we have everything cleaned up now. It's crazy how much stuff they upload/update in a matter of minutes.

Easier recovery for hacked sites - Official Google Webmaster Central Blog

Quote:
We know that as a site owner, discovering your site is hacked with spam or malware is stressful, and trying to clean it up under a time constraint can be very challenging. We’ve been working to make recovery even easier and streamline the cleaning process — we notify webmasters when the software they’re running on their site is out of date, and we’ve set up a dedicated help portal for hacked sites with detailed articles explaining each step of the process to recovery, including videos.

Today, we’re happy to introduce a new feature in Webmaster Tools called Security Issues.

As a verified site owner, you’ll be able to:

•Find more information about the security issues on your site, in one place.
•Pinpoint the problem faster with detailed code snippets.
•Request review for all issues in one go through the new simpified process.

While we are working hard to help webmasters prevent hacks in the first place through efforts such as blog posts and #NoHacked campaigns, we recognize that our reconsideration process is an important part of making recovering from a hack faster and easier.

An update on how we tackle hacked spam

October 05, 2015 update from Google on how they are handling hacked spam:
Quote:
Recently we have started rolling out a series of algorithmic changes that aim to tackle hacked spam in our search results. A huge amount of legitimate sites are hacked by spammers and used to engage in abusive behavior, such as malware download, promotion of traffic to low quality sites, porn, and marketing of counterfeit goods or illegal pharmaceutical drugs, etc.

Website owners that don’t implement standard best practices for security can leave their websites vulnerable to being easily hacked. This can include government sites, universities, small business, company websites, restaurants, hobby organizations, conferences, etc. Spammers and cyber-criminals purposely seek out those sites and inject pages with malicious content in an attempt to gain rank and traffic in search engines.

We are aggressively targeting hacked spam in order to protect users and webmasters.

The algorithmic changes will eventually impact roughly 5% of queries, depending on the language. As we roll out the new algorithms, users might notice that for certain queries, only the most relevant results are shown, reducing the number of results shown:
