Site files cleanup notes
Almost all web folders will get infected, so it will be wise to start fresh 100%.
1. Perform overall backup – site files and database;
2. Move all web files outside root folder, to prevent further data loss;
3. Rebuild everything making sure plugins, themes are all malware free;
4. Restore wp-config.php and wp-content/uploads folder, but make sure these are malware free ( manual check ); and
5. Make sure core files, plugins and theme are up-to-date ( delete everything unused or abandoned );

Database cleanup
1. Use phpMyAdmin and look for “fromCharCode”, “lowerbeforwarden” and “declarebusinessgroup”;
2. Use a search and replace tool, to get rid of malicious entries:
