Do a full cleanup, be 100% confident you have no modified code left, not
just your WP install (if it's a shall account, look for trojaned binaries
too) THEN change your password. There is every chance that the compromise
has modified "change password" scripts/binaries too, to capture your new
password as well as your old one.
