Install Security Updates to Old Drupal Site
Hello Drupal Expert!
A small, I hope quick job that may lead to more work( --and whoops--I will pay up to $25 per hour for this job, not $20.)
My company developed a Drupal site several years ago, but it was never finished. It may have been hacked (we saw a Viagra ad on the site yesterday, but it's gone today). My website host says there's no evidence of any damage that they can see, so I may have gotten rid of the hacker myself when I updated access. Security updates have not been provided for several years as I couldn't figure out how to install them. The material on the site is important to me, so I don't want to lose it.
I need a Drupal pro to:
1.) Doublecheck that the backups I'm using have worked, and the site is being properly backed up
2.) Make sure there's not a hacker (and get rid of him if he's there).
3.) Install all the security updates going back a couple years
4.) Use best practices to secure the site so it won't get hacked again
5.) Communicate with me--give me a clear list of information you need to do this work.
I think this is probably a very small job if you know Drupal well, but I hope to find someone I can work with in the future on this site.
