No, the site was not hacked...not exactly.

Media Temple, our hosting company had a breach of security and a nearly complete list of user passwords leaked out onto the internet. Some idiot kid picked up that list of passwords from one of the various places it was available and used it to access my account and deface all of our sites (including my wedding website and personal blog).

Media Temple has restored us from the latest backups--the affected passwords have all been changed.
