Check a hacked Joomla 1.5 web shop & fix login

Hi freelancers,

I'm looking for somebody with Joomla web shop experience. A client has asked me to repair their hacked Joomla 1.5 website. The URL is [url removed, login to view]

I have no experience with Joomla myself, so I need somebody that has this expertise. This also means that I have not built the website and that I do not know the architecture, e.g. used plugins and customization of the website. This is why we need a Joomla expert.

Yesterday I have executed some simple steps to try and undo the hack

The steps that I executed:

- backed up all files except for the media directory

- fix file and folder permissions (did a recursive for all files and folders to 755, then on some important php files 644)

- change control panel password (this login works fine)

- change Joomla admin password through phpMyAdmin (used MD5 hash off course, but the login still does not work)

- replace [url removed, login to view] by a fresh copy of Joomla [url removed, login to view]

- fixed /components/com_user/models/[url removed, login to view] by adding the following code after global $mainframe; on line 113 of [url removed, login to view]

if(strlen($token) != 32) {


return false;


## Assignment ##

This is my request for the freelancer:
