Malware issues continue after confluence security vulnerability addressed...

My environment was impacted by the security vulnerability introduced by Atlantis Confluence Security Advisory - 2019-03-20

It's best practice (and in this case, pretty much a have to do) that if a system has been compromised that you setup a brand new installation on a clean server, carefully restore your data (database and home directory) - watch carefully that you're not pulling over infected files too, run your companies virus/etc over the data you restore and then closely monitor the new environment as well.
