    Hi there, my site has just been hacked.

    I've tried to fix it by replacing the index.php with a WordPress reinstall and that worked to some extent but at the bottom of the site there seems to be a hackers tool kit.

    Here's a screen shot

    Can anybody please help? Desperate for suggestions.
    Thanks.

    @ drog1998

    Someone has uploaded a shell script to your site. It could be anywhere. The links provided by Krishna are the usually points you should go through first. I believe the one at Otto's blog discusses where the scripts could be uploaded to. You'll need to check your uploads directory (default is wp-content/uploads/) and any cache directories, especially if any of your plugins or theme uses the timthumb script. But even if you find it, there could be other malicious files spread through out your site so that they can regain access even if you find the vulnerable entry way.
