After spending some time analyzing your weblogs I concluded that you wasted my time, and didn't listen to the clear advice we provided for you.

Code: Select all

188.16.119.11 - - [12/Jan/2016:05:58:34 +0200] "GET /index.php?option=com_users&view=registration HTTP/1.1" 200 22655 "htt p://DOMAIN.com/index.php?option=com_users&view=registration" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/39.0.2171.65 Safari/537.36 OPR/26.0.1656.24"

My guess is that in some point of time you have had active user registration before and some vulnerable version of Joomla or extension which allowed elevated rights, and that lead to this situation.

* did you had such situation and fixed afterwards?
* was you website hacked before and you tried to clean it up?

Anyway, check again your user registration settings and turn it off if you don't need it.
It's expected that new users pop up if you still didn't disable the registration!! >:(

P.S. You have a lot of brute force attacks on the backend login form. I suggest you to protect access to it by htpasswd aka "password-protected folder"

do not bump posts. that means do not post within a few hours a worthless post saying help m
e or similar.

you have been asked several times regarding your registration policy on that site.
you have still not answered. using previous information I was able to go to.your user registration page and if I had wanted to... created a profile. uploaded an image that may contain malicious script. filled in a profile with hundreds of spam links etc etc

therefore the site is not hacked. joomla is not creating spam articles. you are allowing users to do that by not properly administering your site.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Please read carefully what Mandville and I concluded.
There is no problem except you not listening to us, and leaving user registration enabled.
Therefore I am marking this topic as solved.

I have a feeling that it will be more easy for you to get your problem solved in your native language, so I would suggest you put your questions on the Turkish forum http://forum.joomla.org/viewforum.php?f=51
i understand that you have also emailed members of this forum directly asking for help. this is against forum rules.
snap shots of that new website indicate it is out of date, has out of date extensions on it, has no control over who makes articles in K2. you are actively allowing users to register without control, subscribe to your newsletters without control, add articles without control .
i have added the last part so that any future forum member may understand that we have repeatedly tried to help you but due to unknown difficulties, you are unable to get your site under control,

Both Mandville and Bernard T have tried their very best to assist you.

You may want to seek paid help by posting to Professional Development Services forum at http://forum.joomla.org/viewforum.php?f=177

Alternatively, you can look for companies specialising in Joomla support in Turkey from the Joomla Resources Directory (JRD) at http://resources.joomla.org/en/

There are also a couple of Joomla community groups in Turkey: http://community.joomla.org/user-groups ... urkey.html

You should at least try to contact one of the Joomla community group in your country and someone may then be able to explain Mandville's and Bernard T's recommendations in your language.

The Joomla community group is not the same as the Turkish forum. Once you check their links, you will find Facebook pages, Twitter feed and email addresses of contact people.

You are obviously out of your depth in terms of technical capacity. My recommendation is that if your site is important, that you seek out a web professional to assist you further.
Step1. Read the instructions. Step2. Refer to step 1. Step 3. Backup
