Joomla Administration shows hacked

Postby spbrady » Fri Feb 26, 2016 10:20 pm

I can successfully login to my website's Joomla Administration.

However, when I attempt to access any of the options there, such as 'Article Manager', I see the following error messages:

[hacker kudos]

I'm unable to update my website and wondered if anyone knows what is causing these messages to be displayed.

The website is still working correctly - I just can't update any of it now.

Any help with this issue would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your response.

When I stated that my website is still working correctly, although the Joomla Administration appears to be hacked, I meant that the site is still online.

Thank you also for the helpful web link.
