It's probably a plugin that had a security problem. Make sure to change your password and advise everyone else on the staff team, particularly those with ACP access to change their password.

What plugins you use?

Yeah, we want to know what are plugins you currently used on your live board

What I generally do is add a pin to my ACP, cover it with a .htpasswd, and chmod the config.php files containing the pin & SQL details so if they get a shell up they can't read it.

Just make sure to search plugins for exploits before installing them.
