Removing malicious code – malicious 404 redirect

  • Hey everybody,
    I was recently notified by GoDaddy that my site was infected with Malware and that it had been blacklisted by Google as a result. I did a little digging and managed to find malicious code in the .htaccess file as well as my theme header. I’ve deleted all instances yet the infection persists. I ran a site scan with sucuri.net and it had detected malware in the following URLs

    thenutrakey.com/feed//404javascript.js
    thenutrakey.com/feed//404testpage4525d2fdc

    I’m not quite sure how to go about cleaning the remaining infections seeing as the URL seems invalid? Is there some sort of trick here, or am I just a total noob? You may safely visit the site’s homepage/blog directory now (thenutrakey.com/feed), but if you try and visit any page that would normally return a 404, the malicious redirect takes over. I’m at a loss!
    I need to get this site off the blacklist. ANY input whatsoever would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Talmage
