    It is an issue that we resolved quite a few years ago and it is most likely stored in one of the parsed versions of your templates or your plugins. However, your site can still be vulnerable because it is using a very outdated version of vBulletin and it appears the installation directory still exists on the server.

    If you followed our announcements and alerts over the years, your site would be secure today. To secure your site, you need to follow each of the steps listed in this topic here:

      Thank you so much. Any opinions on why Google is seeing spam ads in its screen caps even today? Those have been updated recently.

      Any opinions on why it says "Via Redirect" ?

        Because you have a long standing exploit in your software that redirects Google searches to another site. We fixed the cause of the exploit in 4.2.1 or something similar. You're using 4.2.0. Going through the steps above removes the exploit from your server.
