How to find an alleged malicious script in WordPress site

A visitor to my Web site at https://giving.heartland.org/ says "Kaspersky advised me it had blocked a malicious URL, and I thought I'd check your source to see if it was your site. Turns out it was, at the very bottom of your source code you have some malicious code executing an iframe to a malicious site via JavaScript."

A quick virus scan of the page online suggested he might be right. How in the world do I go into the WordPress code to find this and get rid of it?

You're welcome :)

Another fast thing to check is to look at the file modification dates on the themes and plugins.  If the attack happened recently, one of the files will stand out with a recent modification date and that should be a pretty good indicator...

That's a very good point, thanks again.
