Labelled as Malicious (False Positive)

Hey there, I have contacted the support via trustedsource.org, however, my page ended up getting marked as Spyware/Adware.

On Sep 7th we've noticed that our server got exploited on Aug 3rd and was used to spread malicious software (known as emotet) via "http://yourwebproject.net/ae_project/3wjun6iwk9wl/ " until it was detected by our service provider. It was removed from the server on Aug 7th. However, we haven't been informed by them about this incident and we were unable to take extensive security measures on our server. We've flushed the server and performed various scans on Sep 8th. Unfortunately, our website is still labelled as malicious by McAfee Site Advisor even though we nothing but only a few HTML files located on our server. Would you kindly take a look into this, please? Thank you for your time.

Here are various scan results of other web site security checking platforms:
