WEBSITE HACKED / GOOGLE SHOWS 'THIS SITE MAY BE HACKED"
The warning This site may be hacked. from
Google is relatively new, has just begun to
show up on search results pages, and is
causing a lot of confusion for site owners.
Google has explained, "when we are indexing the pages of a site and we see something that indicates that the page has probably been altered by a 3rd party we will flag the listings in search results with the tag "This site may be hacked."."
So what does that mean? As Google was indexing your pages they saw "something" that indicates that your pages have been modified by a 3rd party. While they have not seen anything that indicates malware, if in fact a 3rd party does have access to your site, is able to add content to your pages, they could (and probably will) add malware to your site.
Also, it is important to note that this warning is not a malware warning (at least not yet) and as the site owner (with one exception) you will not see malware warnings in your Search Console (Webmaster Tools) account, your site will not be blocked with an interstitial page and so on. You should check under Security Issues and Search Traffic -> Manual Actions to be sure, but, Typically a this site may be hacked warning is going to be algorithmic, not manual, so a site owner will not see any notice in Search Console and will not be able to request any sort of review. It is kind of rare but some spam hacks do lead to a Manual Action so it is important to check. Google has said something like "the warning will be removed automatically as we re-crawl the site and find it is clean" However, depending how frequently the site is being crawled, that can take awhile.

When you've verified your site, you can check the security issues you are having. Search Console will also show details on the pages and URLs that might be hacked.
Then, head over to Manage site and look at the users and owners listed for your website. Make note of the email addresses of any unauthorized users and delete them from your users and owners list. Remember to remove any meta tag or HTML files that were used to identify those myseterious users.
2. Contact Your Host

First, try looking for FAQ sections and discussions that are related to the issue you are having. You can see if there are readily available answers that can help you quickly resolve your website.
