WordPress Hacked - HELP.

  1. My brother in law has a wordpress set up on his blog ( and this morning we awoke to it being hacked. He can still login to his ftp where all the files are stored but his username/password into the wordpress back in aren't working - so i guess the hackers changed those.

    Does anyone know how we can fix it from the ftp? I mean the files are there. I am afraid to edit the files for fear ill lose the content he already has.

    I have some html/php knowledge, someone just give me a fix direction and ill try and make it work.
