Unfortunately, your computer can contract a virus at anytime. And, these viruses are being spread even more frequently through social media platforms, mobile applications and websites that are not secure.

Recently, it was discovered that as many as 20,000 existing websites could be affected by malware, according to a new message that Google's Search Quality team has released to the public.

PC World reports that Google is concerned over a virus that can inject a website with Javascript redirect malware. In addition, Google says the virus could put server configuration files that are not secure at risk.

"Specifically, we think that JavaScript has been injected into your site by a third party and may be used to redirect users to malicious sites," reads a portion of the message that Google has sent.

The code, which typically contains "eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,r)" may be placed in the website's HTML, Javascript or PHP files, and can "cloak" itself, or appear and disappear in specific situations.

At, our website is certified by industry leading, independent verification services like McAfee Security, because we know how important it is to be safe and secure when shopping online. If you are buying items online, make sure that the website is secure, like ours. One easy way to tell if a website is secure when you are being asked for payment information, is to check the URL. A secure URL reads: "https" (the "s" stands for secure) and typically has a small lock icon.

If your personal computer is running slowly or acting strangely, you can always contact a local computer repair center for virus removal and, if necessary, Trojan virus removal. And if you chose to look for these services online, remember to use a secure website with the appropriate URL.
