Two of my joomla sites were recently hacked.  One was using the sportopolis template.  It may have been due to me not patching the site. I didn?t want to break what I already had up.

Frustrated after hours of trying to undo the hack, I created a new directory for the domain and did a fresh install of sportopolis and have been peaceing the site back together.

Originally I  was using eTensity on the site which has virtual mart directly integrated. Is there a way to get sportopolis to integrate w. virtualmart?
(I went back and I?m trying to get the original site back so I can see if there is anything I am missing (besides VM) )

The Hacker was:
email:[email protected]
He changed the admin name to TaKasi & password to Pass

Is there anywhere  someone can report these types of attacks?

Hello, hacks are almost always caused by unsecure servers. I would suggest contacting a third party to do a security analysis on your site.
