I called the guys at Hostgator and they were on it in no-time flat. They cleaned all the iframes off of all 5 sites, and gave me a general description of how the virus worked. They even included a clip of my FTP logs to show me exactly when the mothership ftp'd in the infections to each site.
Same experience here. But it doesn't have to be WP. My HG-hosted site were all plain vanilla.
One of the biggest problems is that no matter how scrupulous you are in keeping machines clean is that sooner or later you are going to get hit. No matter how good your AV is or how often profiles are updated, let's face it, they're always a bit behind the curve.
I've gotten to the point that my dev machine does not connect to *anything* except my sites and my AV and malware updates. I do deep scans before firing up FTP or Frontpage. The machine is not networked with any other. Heck, I even disconnect the ethernet cable when not in use.
I'm not paranoid, I just know folks are out to get me.
