There seems to be a common hack going around, not just in WordPress, but in other common php-based scripts such as joomla, etc. In this hack, a line of encrypted code is placed into many different files.

If you have SSH access, you can run a command based on the following to find and replace all that hacker-related code.

for file in $(grep "searchstring" -lir *); do sed -i 's/searchstring/replacestring/g' $file; done;

(Try also):

find . \( -name "*.php" \) -exec grep -Hn "[\t]*eval(base64_decode(.*));" {} \; -exec sed -i 's/[\t]*eval(base64_decode(.*));//g' {} \;

Note: Make sure to backup your content first, in case you break something!
