This site may be hacked message on Google

When viewing search results for your NetCommunity or WordPress site you may see text below the link stating the site may be hacked.
This is a new feature from Google designed to provide a safer browsing experience. The issue is that if the site has mixed content you will get a false positive that the page has been potentially hacked. Please see the image below from Google which explains this in more detail.

Follow the steps below to remove this notice from your website in Google's search results.
  1. Register and verify your site in Google’s Search Console.
  2. Sign in to Search Console and check the "Security Issues" section to see details of sample URLs that might be hacked. Fix the security issue that allowed your website to be infected. Otherwise, your site is likely to be reinfected.
  3. Read our resources for hacked sites for detailed information on how to fix your website.
  4. Request a review in the Security Issues section in Search Console when your entire website is clean and secure. After we check that your site is fixed, we'll remove the "This site may be hacked" message.
