wordpress hacked - I need to know how to fix!

We have a whole bunch of sites built with Wordpress and running a Canvas Child theme. Yesterday, we noticed in Chrome that they had all been hacked and the site title had been changed to "+ADw-/title+AD4-HackeD By Aghiles" (as well as this being inserted in the footer.)

If you try and look at the site in Internet Explorer you cannot see the site at all but merely the hack-code.

We updated the Wordpress version and any relevant plugins, changed the user password and the hack-code was still there.

We changed the site title and this seemed to fix the issue in Chrome, but still no IE

I changed the theme from the Canvas Child to just the Canvas one and still nothing.

If you go to the themes options in the dashboard you can see this warning repeated:

Warning: htmlspecialchars(): charset `UTF-7' not supported, assuming utf-8 in /home/james/public_html/wp-includes/[login to view URL] on line 4002

I can give you access to one of the sites that does not matter and you can go in and have a look and see what's up, and then if you can give us easy-to-understand details on how to fix them all then we can spend the weekend going through them all and fixing them.

Example of site is [login to view URL]
