    The link staartmees provided is a good place to start. Here are some additional things to consider:

    There are a couple of tools you can use to help detect damage that may have been done to your site:
    Exploit Scanner plugin
    Sucuri online scanner

    Other things you should do:

    • Change passwords for all users, especially Administrators and Editors.
    • If you upload files to your site via FTP, change your FTP password.
    • Re-install the latest version of WordPress.
    • Make sure all of your plugins and themes are up-to-date.
    • Update your security keys.

    Just cleaning out files isn’t enough. When you’re done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures.
