Site http://scentaliciousbytanja.com.au/ that I'm working on crashed only showing:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /home/......./public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/index.php on line 2
I am sure this is a hack of some sort, easily fixed but thought I should bring it to your attention.

Fixed by replacing the wp-content/themes/atahualpa/index.php with the original by FTP.

Any one with ideas on how this happened?

someone cracked your password (did you know that 'password' is the #1 password people use?)
someone hacked the server you are on
someone hacked your computer and installed a keylogger
someone use a vunerability in some old plugin you are using
someone discovered a new security exploit and used it on you.

how's that for a few possibilities? Seriously, unless you have access to ALL the logs from your server for the last couple weeks and want to spend a lot of money on someone doing a forensic investigation, ther is probally no way to know

I have found an amazing plugin called Wordfence it handles a huge amount of security issues and sends you emails if the site gets tampered with, I have more than 40 wordpress sites now and run it on all, also lets me know when things need an upgrade.
