I have a DNN 7 website that was hacked a while back.  While I have cleaned out the extra HOST users and plugged the holes that were there, it turns out that there is  re-direct on the home page for mobile devices that I cannot find.  There was no Site Redirection configuration (I created one to stop the re-direct to the SPAM site), however I have been through the CSS, the config files that I can find and cannot find where the redirection might be.  And it seems like it is only on the home page, no other page does that?

I'm looking for anything else I can check.

Module settings perhaps?

Have you tried upgrading to DNN 9 yet?

Once the site is compromised, you may actually run the risk of the entire server being compromised.
