There are no known vulnerabilities in MyBB so your hosting account was compromised directly via a configuration vulnerability or a bad script other than MyBB (that could be a bad plugin as well) or indirectly via another account on the server being hacked and thus the whole server made vulnerable.

If you have a bad plugin or bad MyBB config/perms, then you could be subject to a redirect attack.
