Download the latest version of coppermine. Read the upgrade instructions, especially the part about the files to save. Back up your gallery folder.

Delete everything in the gallery folder that's not on the list of files to save. Double-check the remaining files to see they haven't been altered by the hacker. Then go through the upgrade process.

Check the rest of your site in case they managed to upload backdoor scripts.

Make sure to keep all your scripts up to date.
