    As promised, I am back to report on the health of my site (docscapes.org), which was the subject of the above thread.

    Here are the steps I have and continue to take (in addition to removing the malicious code described above):
    -I installed Wordfence, which scans the site daily.
    -I added SSL to the site.
    -I keep an eye on crawl errors in Google Search Console.
    -Today I also scanned the site with the free GravityScan (gravityscan.com).

    All results are positive! I am hoping to be out of the woods.

    I also removed a plugin Simple Share Buttons Adder that was inserting a slew of external urls.

    Finally, I followed other recommendations provided at http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress.

    Thank you again to Steve (@sterndata) for tipping me off to Wordfence. I have installed it on all 11 of my WordPress sites.
