After Macquarie Media apparently had 2GB.com and 4BC.com hacked this morning, also on WordPress it seems there is a big lack of knowledge on this stuff out there.

I should of provided the following link with my previous post but
Sucuri.net offer a paid service for cleaning Malware and they offer a
free scan for websites as well.
It looks like a bit of a mess.
