    Reinstall WordPress after hacked coinhive, by ouch

    My site has been infected with coinhive hack.

    I tried to reinstall WordPress, but it is still showing up when I run malwarebytes. Here’s the process that I used to reinstall WordPress.

    -Change passwords for FTP, MySQL and WordPress site
    -Took hacked site off-line
    -created new WordPress install
    -added back wp-config.php file
    -uninstalled and reinstalled theme
    -added back wp-content/uploads folder //note that I also checked my site before uploading this folder and it was still showing the infection.

    Is this infection probably in my database somewhere?
