    Use PHPMYAdmin from cPanel, and import only that table.

    Creat a new database, import the old one and than export only the "wp_usermeta" table.

    Go to your current database, clear the table "wp_usermeta" and import the exported table

    You need to keep the code, themes and plugins updated. Being the expert that I am, I know there is no better security than a fresh backup!
