Generally you should reinstall your whole machine in such cases as you never know if the script may have left any backdoors elsewehere in your system.

next thing you should do besides reinstalling is using different passwords when recreating the accounts on the new machine.

I do no think it's just about the php safemode as there may be many several possible ways to break in a system. Also safe mode is the "killer" security option and there are many ppl telling about ignoring this feature and suggest using open_basedir and other restrictions, as safe mode won't be integrated in further php versions.
