    No unfixed bugs in old scripts act like backdoors to your database, some of the old wordpress releases have bugs too which can be exploited its not a rare thing anymore

    A few years ago I got hacked,as did all the sites on the shared server I was on, it was more down to the Host provider not having great security.

    I Never Got Hacked.. And I Will Not Because I'm A Hacker Already :D

    And About This.. Out-to-date Script Contain A Very Dangerous Bugs And It's Easy To Be Exploited.. There Is Lots Of File Include Vuls, Which Can Be Exploited Easly And Upload The PHP Shell to The Server In Few Minutes.. And If You Do Have A Shared Hosting, Then The Hacker Can Hack The Whole Websites, So The Hosting Company Should Be Smart And Secure Their Servers Otherwise The Hacker Can Get The Root Access Options Easly!

    There Is Lots Of Types Of Hacking.. I See Your Website Is Down I Guess You Received Some Huge DDOS Attacks.. But The DDOS Attacks Are Exploited By Noobs! It Just Need To Flood On The Server And The Websites Go Down.. But To Hack The Website And Get The Root Access Options It's Way Harder..

    Thanks God I've never been hacked before. And I hope I won't be hacked in the future. It is hard to recover those files without back up.

    Having been doing websites since 1999 or so, I have been hacked maybe 5 times. I've never completely lost a website. It was always a "defacement" that I was able to recover from quickly. I remember my phpBB forum got hacked a couple of times.
