    was your database password the same as your server password?

    Is your server been hacked or the domain? The server seems to be based in the isle of man.

    I think just the joomla has been hacked not the server, the website is not hosted in school.

    Regrading the backups, I have no clue if we have any, I don't deal with the website myself.

    Key thing to know is what version of Joomla were you using..

    There were some security exploits in earlier versions of 1.5 and you have to be careful that you don't use any apps/add-ons that also have any exploits.

    Just to make you aware, once you get an exploit like this you should treat the whole machine as compromised until proved otherwise. We recently had an old Joomla site hacked and once in they tried to run a load of root kits against the server, fortunatly our apache is well setup to they failed.

    I assume you either had a weak password or more likely as mentioned above were using a version of Joomla which had known exploits.

    Cheers
