Website been hacked?

Hi,

I don't really use my webspace for anything more than testing purposes. I used the cgi space to test Mambo and Coppermine before uploading them to a different web hosting company. Yesterday, I clicked on the link to my plusnet webspace http://cgi.niveus.plus.com/, and all I got was a page with the text "H4ck3rsBR Ownz - Now FreeBSD 4.10-BETA - S8ldier" It should have been a Mambo (see http://www.mamboserver.com/) content generated page. Just wondeing if anything thinks this suggests that my webspace has been hacked? The coppermine part of the site seems to be fine - http://cgi.niveus.plus.com/coppermine

Yes your webspace has been altered by a hacker, as were many other users. It happened about a month ago and was commented/discussed at the time. This was due to your lack of security in the permissions of the files in your CGI webspace which allowed another CGI user to overwrite your files and possible your database.

See php nuke web space hacked by H4ck3rsBR and the links posted within that thread, especially the tutorial on file permissions.
