Re: Website has been attacked.

You got hit with a crypto extortion scheme.  File encrypting ransomware hits Linux

We recently updated magento with all patches apart last one SUPEE-6788.

 If that "recently" is in the last month or two, your website has been vulnerable to attack for quite some time now.

 

The initial attack on the "ShopLift" bug was a massive injection of an admin account with a predetermined password which allowed full access to Magento's backend, often with the installation of MagePleasure file management software being the first and only thing that was done. Other patched vulnerabilities included a CMS flaw that allowed for unrestricted file creation on the server.
