If you were getting “This site contains harmful programs” thats means your website was hacked OR It had some sort of virus or Trojan or suspicious code in the live server and Google thought it could be dangerous for your visitors.
Google let your visitors know that they can go back to safety because your website could be harmful.

1.BACKUP YOUR WORDPRESS SITE:

Please make a complete backup of your WordPress site.

2.MANUALLY REMOVE CORRUPTED PLUGINS, THEMES OR FILES:

If you found that it’s something on the backend then log into wordpress backend and remove that plugin,theme,the affected files OR suspicious code.

Once you remove them from your web server,please ask Google to remove the warning.

{i}First login to your Google Webmaster tools.
{ii}Go to security issues and then check the box letting Google know that you have fixed the errors and the warnings.
{iii}Now Google should re-crawl your website and verify that you had fixed the problems.
{iv}And finally your website should be back to normal.

3.INSTALL WORDFENCE SECURITY PLUGIN:

Once you have fixed your problem its better to activate a security plugin on your website.It’s keep your websites safe.I’ll recommend to use Wordfence. To do this; simply go to your plugins, add new and then look for Wordfence or type in security.
