    It has been hacked. If it's made in Wordpress this is a very common hack, probably by the use of a broken plugin.

    This is just an issue of code. The hacks modify the code generally in the posts and other parts of the site like the functions.php of your theme. Also, you have to identify which plugin is generating this issue.
    It happened to me twice in the last year, and although it was a pain, it is possible to clean the site with time and dedication.
    Despite the fact you have backups, it is important to detect who is causing this issue, because there is a big possibility of repetition after your recover the backup.

    Contact Hosting provider for malware scan. They will try to solve issue. If they can't help then try to uninstall plugins. If nothing work then you can reinstall.

    Scan your site with WordFence if you are using WP
