Help - Joomla Website Hacked
We have a vast array of experience when it comes to fixing hacked Joomla sites or resurrecting your hacked website from back-ups. If your Joomla site has been hacked then you need our help. We offer three main services for recovering a hacked site:
- Cleaning a hacked Joomla site in-situ
- Full clean rebuild of site's files
Cleansing a hacked Joomla site and improving security
Unfortunately it is all too common to find that hacked Joomla websites are operated by users who for whatever reason have no viable back-ups available to them. Where a Joomla website is hacked and there is no usable back-up available, there are two ways to end up with a clean set of Joomla files complete with all of your add-ons but without any dropped files.
Joomla Hacked - Website Hacked
Method 1: Cleaning the hacker files from a hacked Joomla site and hardening security
£450 Cleaning up Joomla after your website as been hacked involves removing code or files that don't belong within the Joomla files and folders. Files that have been tampered with will be overwritten with clean, new, up-to-date files.This process requires automated scanning and some human intuitive snooping. Whilst this is the quicker of the two methods it is somewhat less thorough than the more comprehensive 'full clean re-build'.
Scan Joomla For Hacker Files
Joomla is built from hundreds of folders containing thousands of files. Everyone has installed some of the 10,000 Joomla extensions available. Some sites will have modified core Joomla files, this is a nightmare when it comes to cleaning up Joomla websites after a hacking incident, knowing what is needed to keep the site working is a skill all of its own. When you see reports of Joomla sites being hacked time and time again - it is invariably due to hacker files left behind creating back-doors which future hacking attacks will use.
Clean Up Joomla Hack £450
The way we work:
- We will clean out the hacker files by the end of the next working day
- If log files are available we will trace the initial vector through which the site was compromised - usually an outdated component - and we will update the component and Joomla itself if required
- We will install our own anti-hacker protection which massively increases the security of the website
But we don't stop there
We will check again 7 days later to see if there has been any sign of recurrence and to monitor log files for any signs of attempts to re-penetrate the site. We will take action as appropriate.
But we don't stop there
We will return roughly one month after the initial clean-up and repeat the process.
Unlike other 'security experts' we assure the quality of our work - we stand by our work and we stand by our clients and their websites.
Method 2: Full clean re-build of the Joomla site and hardening security
£950 Start with a basic Joomla installation, install all of the add-ons (components, modules, templates, and plugins) you utilise in your site. The next step is to delete all of the files from your current site (backing them up, just in case you need them). The major step is to put your clean new files into place on the site. Finally - we have to carefully examine a select few files and folders from the original site (images, edited template files, etc) and place them into the newly rebuilt site.
