    My site got hacked once. Your hosting company should have backups stored daily, weekly or monthly. Try ask them to restore a backup from before the site was hacked?
    Edit: And change your passwords!

    Doesn't matter, I know with my hosting company at least, they have all backups stored on their main server. You just need to request them to use it :) Good luck bro.

    Not sure if you resolved the issue yet, but how bad/what kind of a hack is it. I know sometimes I run into redirects that come from using nulled wordpress templates, etc.

    A lot of the time its a simple fix, just removing a few lines of code from the functions.php file, but depending on what kind of hack you could be dealing with something worse, or possibly something exploiting outdated plug-ins, etc.

    Had same problem as you for one of my websites.

    First thing change your username and password for the superadministrator account. Do a check to see if there are any other accounts with admin/superadmin rights that you do not know about.

    Probably you have some outdated vulnerable components installed. There were numerous attacks on Joomla websites using the JCE editor older than v 2.1. So if you have it installed, you need uninstall it and update it to update it to the last version. A full list of vulnerable components can be found here:
    http://docs.joomla.org/Vulnerable_Extensions_List
    Take each of your installed components and try and see if you can find it in the list above. If so uninstall it and install the latest version if possible

    Also do a search in files for "eval(stripslashes" and "eval(base64_decode(" .

    Do a file compare of your index.php and .htaccess to a clean distribution of Joomla same version as yours.

    This should be enough to get you started.

    For more details contact me.
