    It is more likely some prior hacker left behind a back door script to re-hack your site (and less likely the version of WordPress has a relation to this issue).

    So once you get things stable, start by resetting all your hosting and WordPress passwords.

    A good start would be delete all inactive themes and plugins as well (to eliminate any potential entry points in those scripts).
