    HI,

    I got the eval/base64_ hack.

    I have done all the requirements for recovering from the wordpress hack.

    I have deleted my site and legacy databases
    I have notified host company. Dreamhost.

    When I download a new copy of wordpress zip and tar to my computer.

    When I unzip it on the computer. and open it and check the content folder it already has those extra index.php files "silence is golden".

    Is the wp installed hacked?

    Is there something that has gotten on my machine?

    I am on MACpowerbook. 10.6.8

    I uninstalled and reinstalled all my browsers because I found some random post about that being possibility and still get the same result.

    I have run virus scan on my machine and nothing has been flagged.

    Please advise.
