Dear experts,
I have a database named "DB1" which has  many tables .
Our database is crashed miserably and all the column values from almost all tables have changed (hacked)... example below.

If the original column has values like below:
New jersey,
New york,  etc...

Some sql injection happened and the column values are added with some weird string "".
So, my column values  become like this now:,

if you notice, for some cities the hacker string is added 2 times, and for some 3 times etc...

Now I want a stored procedure / script that will remove / truncate all these added values.. Since the string that is added is same through out the table irrespective of no of iteration, I guess the cleansing canbe done through some sql script..
 I want the script will search whole database and and delete the hackers string.

Appreciate your help.
