    Do a check on all php js css html files to see if there are any injected iframes or base64 encoded strings. Clean them up. Or restore your site to a previous backup.

    Have fixed few defaced and malware affected sites and it worked out well.

    did you check your theme? it could be the theme not the plugins.

    and did you check with your host, they should do a scan for you!

    Start fresh and keep the same content and link structure. That would be the wisest thing to do IMO. Don't try to fix the script. Just do new WP install, new theme and so on..

    You could also tell your provider to do a clamav scan of your files, if you want... but .. you could get hacked again later on.
