With websites infected with malware, viruses and malicious content we usually transfer them to aquarantined area on one of our servers, clean the files and database, restore core files, and then transfer them back to the source. More often than not they are transferred to a more suitable host or to one of our secure servers.
This consisted of repairing a compromised web server, malware removal, installation and configuration of a firewall, and virus scanner, re-configuring Apache and the hosting configuration, updating the Joomla version on 14 sites, along with all of the templates and all extensions, implementing additional site security measures, along with automated daily site backups.
Excellent work, Well done! Andrew certainly knows his stuff, worked around the clock until he got our server back online and all of our sites restored.
