    There are multiple things you need to do.
    1. Make sure you do not have a keylogger or any sort of exploit on your system.
    2. Do NOT connect to your site signins (ex:ftp or plesk) using a proxy.
    3. Do not use pirated software, especially ftp. This is cake to grab pwds from.
    4. Change your password, use upper/lower case, misc chars and numbers
    5. Contact your host

    You're probably on a shared server. Just tell your host and they'll move you... they usually take backups of every server everyday as well but some make you pay for the service.

    Yes, you can. Or go into the files and change it back. Easiest would probably be to just re-install wp

    A pressing question is how did they get your password? Did you not make it obscure enough? Was it easily guessable? You may have some kind of malicious keystroke logger installed on your PC, in which case you might want to do something about that.

    Ouch, you need to use your cpanel to do a backup as often as you can. its saved to a file, i save that file to 2 hdds then if i need to restore i can.
    change all your passwords and reinstall wp. Unlucky :(

    you will need to go into cpanel and export your admin table out. Set the password to blank and re-apply it (drop and do the recreate and inserts). the login the blog change the password to something obscure.

    then check your header.php etc in your template for added javascript and check your permalinks.

    once that is sorted make sure you upgrade your blog to wordpress 2.9.1
