How to Check Virus infection On My Website - Reported Attack site

Yesterday night I actually shocked while seeing one of my websites is reported as an attack site (Not this blog). In Firefox I saw the message "Reported Attack Page" and blocked access to my website. When I search my website in Google I saw the following alert on my website "This site may harm your computer". When I click on the Google Search Result of my website, it leads to another page which says, Malware Warning. It clearly shows the presence of malware on my website and it may harm my readers' computer. So I log in to the server (last time I logged in before one year, that too just upload this website) and check the source code. I really surprised to see a bunch of malicious script in my web pages. I really don't know how it came to my website (unfortunately this is a tiny server and no access to log files). Anyway, here I am writing a standard procedure to handle virus infection in your website. There is no need to panic while seeing a virus infection in your website. We can fix the issue by ourselves.

Google periodically checking all the websites whether it is malicious one or not. If one website is infected, Google will show you an alert "This website may harm your computer" with the Google Search result of the website.

Firefox and other browsers block connection to an infected website. If you try to access an infected website, you will get the following message.
