Restoring an Exploited WordPress files

wordpress-hackedI previously had a 10 step process to replace all the files in a wordpress, this got rid of most file based exploits.

Since then i have written a shell script that pretty much incorperates that

wget http://blog.rimuhosting.com/files/restorewordpress.sh
chmod +x restorewordpress.sh
./restorewordpress.sh /full/path/to/documentroot

Note: This does not do custom themes or plugins (only ones from wordpress.com), and its a good idea to double check the wp-config.php is clean, either before, or immediately after doing this.

Please let me know if you have any issues at all with this script, or modifications needing to be made.
