Ummm..where is your forum even located? I only see join links and stuff.

Also, the hacker probably included a redirect tag in either the site description, or the forum descriptions.

Check those out in the ACP.

Also upgrade to 2.0.13 and run my toolkit to scan for any backdoor admin accounts and backdoor files with the HackScan that is included.
