It seems may be they entered by JCE, as I read many JCE exploits in 2018.

I have uninstalled all the 3rd party extensions and reinstalled them and migrated their DB data table and got them in place.

Don't blame the award winning JCE without any proof of such statement.

If you would have followed all advise in this thread you would have a clean site, would have exactly know what had caused this hack and you would have saved money on an inferior product as I consider the RS Firewall

If the Leading Security Expert of Joomla is reaching you a hand you should take it and not completely ignore it.
