I will add that the person which broke into changed the login name.

Use stronger passwords and don't share them with anyone else. After you hire a developer you don't know or trust change passwords too.

You can be the victim of the hacking attack as well. The version you use is TOO OLD. We highly recommend to upgrade to the latest release. Since 2.0 RC5a we have had some vulnerabilities in the software. Using free open source program, be sure to always update it in time...
