2 Sites affected by the same hack (post_content injected with malicious Javascript )
Seems hosted by tsoHost.

Some advice?

And are the websites hosted on the same server?

Okay, How did you figure out it's the same hack?

They probably hacked one and got access to the other because they are on the same server.

Try to Install WordFence. Scan the website for backdoors the hacker might have added to core files.

Update all Plugins

If you haven't already, change the file permissions of wp-config.php to 600. So that 1 hack does not affect the other

With these steps, you should be reasonably safe

Find the logs and see just what they did, and WAF active and if so which one?

Good idea, but if I were the hacker, I will remove all my activity from the logs. I will not even delete the log files, but I will simply find all entries with my IP Address and remove them.

Victim will not even suspect a thing

Most hackers that manage to inject or modify files on wordpress sites do not have access to root and so cannot modify server logs, also on a good setup logs will be monitored for changes which will be instantly logged offsite and the hacker would not have access to these even if he had root.

I agree logs are always a good place to start with. Most of those Javascript infections are due to vulnerability in some plugin where they can writeback/run the encoded javascript to post their content onto the website.
