[AlaskaRC] Unwelcome website "help"

Hello all,

On June 7th someone vandalized the ARCS website.  I've archived the 
files used in the defacement and have started a restore from backup. 
I'm not sure how long the restore will take, but once the restore is 
finished, I'll be changing the admin passwords and upgrading to the 
latest version of Joomla.  I suspect the compromise was via a security 
flaw in Joomla.

No personal or financial information is stored on the website, beyond 
what is in the club roster (name and phone number) and the treasurer's 
report so this is really more of an annoyance than anything.
