Project Description

Recently my website Joomla v [url removed, login to view] was hacked with a pharmahack. I cleaned the website but it appears that the vulnerability persists and there are residuals on the website that are affecting the client which is installed on end users desktops. This client should call a GET http command to fetch fresh config and at the moment this does not work.

I require someone to clean the website directory (I have a clean backup version of the website which you may compare against the infected one) and to harden the server. Remove all unnecessary services and files and to configure with me iptables and other security in depth options to make this server more secure. If possible identify the infection point or install alerts and IDS/IPS to identify such problems in the future.

Measures should be in place to prevent as much as possible this from happening again. It is not possible to upgrade the Joomla as it is a custom template for this version of Joomla. Mod_security and Mod_evasive are installed on Apache.
