SQL database is crashed

Hello, Our server was hit by some unknown virus which seems to have corrupted header information for many of our files including an important databases and some of its backups. However the log file (.LDF) for the live DB was not affected. We also have a relatively old .BAK backup file. Is it possible to bring the DB (.MDF) in the old backup to Live standard using the new/latest Log file? If so, how? Any help is truly appreciated.

    But how do I "Take a tail log backup of your database after your full backup", since I don't have access to the original DB anymore.
