Website got infected and now i have questions

  • PLEASE HELP! My website was compromised with exploitive code a few months back, and i’m only now discovering it with a few errors when people try to visit the site…

    My web server tech found files that were infected, tracing it back to a bad timthumb file. But I don’t know what these files do, and therefore how to delete the bad code (where the good ends and the bad begins, that is). So, I went to the 3.3.2 version of wordpress and downloaded it again, I could not find those three files in the current folder of wordpress files. Are they created at the time of installation only? Or are they invalid files and not needed at all?

    ./wp-includes/js/gCountdown.php
    ./wp-includes/newsticker.php
    ./wp-admin/js/jquery-min.php

    These are currently on my site, with bad code. But before I simply remove them in the cleanup process, I need to be sure they will NOT break my website!
