Cleaning out malware - but where are my files?

Post by keithstoddart » Tue Nov 25, 2014 1:19 pm

A client's website has been injected with malware and has been blocked by google.
Although it gives me where it is and stuff I can't find where the page files are for me to clean. I have cleaned the index.php file in my template in the templates folder but I don't where the other page files are.
Also, is there any software that can seek out these files and clean them up?

My client is hosting his website elsewhere but I do have access to the cpanel. I am also using joomla 2.5
