    thats quite good there was a site somebody mentioned the otherday on here that looked like it had been comprimised and as google say they trawl the content all the time so picking up bad bits in the code. probly will be if there is a robots.txt file hiding the content that has been comprimised

    Half the point of spam is it gets indexed by google... so i doubt they will put a robots.txt in there to hide the spam from search engines.

    Great except I blocked Google from indexing the site as it is only for students on a particular course anyway- security through obscurity I know, but I have backed that up with proven permissions on the private parts and CMS updates.

    Don't want anyone poking around the rest though as there are official information sites for students not on this course and anyone who wants more information.
