Hello, got a client whose site looks like it has been hacked. A Malaware warning comes up when trying to access it. The Joomla version is 1.5.x and from what my hosting provider tells me, there are a HEAP of this version that has been compromised. Is it worth trying to clean it up or should I just can it and start again? There is a fair bit of work involved but I gotta do what I gotta do. The backup that I have is not likely to have been before the issue.

Site is chop(-)it(-)hd (dot) com (the dashes are for real)

Any advice is welcomed please,

John

Hi John,

Nikunj is good value to fix up the site.

....... but, you should really be looking at upgrading you 1.5 sites anyway ... why? you can get the hint from the response of your webhost - 1.5 is no longer a supported version, not even on security fixes.

Happy to look at helping with a redev .... also, check the security and related workshops this weekend at:
