| htaccess: Not Implemented ****

[ ] Ensure you have the latest version of Joomla. Delete all files in your Joomla installation. Replace the deleted files with fresh copies of a current full version of Joomla, and fresh copies of extensions and templates used. Only by replacing all files in the installation (including extensions and templates) can you be sure to remove the backdoors inserted and hidden in files and directories

[ ] Review Vulnerable Extensions List

[ ] Review and action Security Checklist checklist 7 to make sure you've gone through all of the steps.

[ ] Scan all machines with FTP, Joomla super admin, and Joomla admin access for malware, virus, trojans, spyware, etc.

[ ] Change all passwords and if possible user names for the website host control panel and your Joomla site.

[ ] Use proper permissions on files and directories. They should never be 777, but ideal is 644 and 755

[ ] Check your htaccess for for any odd code (i.e. code which is not in the standard htaccess supplied as part of the Joomla installation).

[ ] Check the crontab or Task Scheduler for unexpected jobs/tasks.

[ ] Ensure you do not have anonymous ftp enabled

Note: The forum post tool will work with J1.6.x

That is not a suspected Iframe...You are hacked as simple as that...iFrame is visible in the code. Changing permissions afterwards makes no sense and you need to follow the instructions provided above by Mandville to clear your site

Postby Manjunath S » Sat Jul 23, 2011 6:06 am

I cant find the update for 1.6.5 but can find only the 1.7.0 version
Extension Mgr > Update Tab > Find updates

Also I can't manually upload & install the 1.6.4 to 1.6.5 .zip file.

E

for your information
[20110701]
Inadequate escaping leads to XSS vulnerability.
Affected Installs
Joomla! version 1.6.5 and all earlier 1.6.x versions
Solution
Upgrade to the latest Joomla! version (1.7.0 or later)

for your action
A Safe route for disaster relief

[*] save the configuration.php file and your images and personal files one by one, (not the folder as it may contain unwanted files)
[*] wipe the entire folder where Joomla! is installed
[*] upload a new clean full package latest version of joomla (minus the install folder)
[*] reupload your configuration file & images., templates (even better is to use original clean copies to ensure that the hacker/defacer did not leave any shell script files in your site)
[*] reupload or reinstall the latest versions of your extensions , templates (even better is to use original clean copies to ensure that the hacker/defacer did not leave any shell script files in your site)

NO.
do a full reinstall after following the A Safe route for disaster relief bit that says to wipe your directory or you WILL be hacked again.

Also changing the permissions of configuration.php from 777 to 755 is incorrect. the correct MAXIMUM permission level for files is 644 and the MAXIMUM permission level of directories are 755. the normal permission level of configuration.php is 444 and should not be higher than 644 for any reason. I should have made that clear in my earlier post.

Yes that is what all files permissions should be set to. 644

All directories should be set to 755

You were already given all the instructions you need in this thread: viewtopic.php?p=2564595 Keep your questions in that thread and follow their instructions.

This thread should be closed/deleted as duplicate.
If I give you an outside solution, I have no affiliation with that product. I may use it, but that is the end of the relationship.
