my site got hacked. i found the malware code and i've been on the phone with my host server for the last hour trying to clear it. they can't seem to help me. how can i edit the php files that are only readable? i tried downloading it and editing and saving, but it won't let me save it because it's only readable. is there another way to edit the php files? please help. thanks.

Try opening the readable  file, Copying the text into another txt file, editing it and saving it over the original copy with the filename?

The safest way to recover from an attack tends to be deleting all the old files and then re-uploading a clean copy.

Do NOT delete your stories folder.  You will however, need to go in and look through each folder within the stories folder.  The only files you should find in those directories are .txt or image files.  Anything else is a present from your hacker.
