    Hello hypno2009,

    sorry to hear that. As Shane Gowland already pointed out the FAQ is a good way to start cleaning up your site.

    As to your question regarding how not to get into this mess in the future.
    We have just released a WordPress Plugin that helps you lock down your WordPress website by identifying security problems with your installed WordPress/plugins/themes the available user accounts and other issues such as insecure configurations.

    Most of topics of the issues described in the WordPress Hardening Guide as well as lot of additional issues are identified by it and solutions are given.

    This will be a good tool to help you lock down your site and protect it from future attacks.

    Edit: You can find the MVIS Security Center Plugin here

    Let me know if you find it useful and I'd be happy to get your feedback!

    Cheers,
    Stefan
