You probably can't other than upgrading to the latest security patch level,
which according to others here should be Typo3 4

If the server was cracked that is a serious situation. Depending on who did
it and what they did, there may be changes that are hard to track. 
If it is your server, I'd put up a replacement server, take this one down
and reinstall everything. (Yes, I'm paranoid - learned it the hard way).

If it's not your server, I'd take a backup of your site, download it off the
server to a box of your choice and check/reinstall/upgrade everything.
Upload the clean site over the compromised one. Coordinate with your
provider if needed.
