Config File Hacked?

My config file was either hacked or there was some glitch with Vanilla. On my Vanilla config.php file all that it says now is:
<?php if (!defined('APPLICATION')) exit(); // Garden $Configuration['Garden']['Analytics']['LastSentDate'] = '20110127'; // Last edited by THEUSERNAME (his IP)2011-02-05 07:12:21

My Vanilla index only displays the installation page. Is this a bug with Vanilla or has it actually been hacked? I managed to get my forum back up though. Seems to be an urgent Vanilla problem, @Mark. If so, I wonder how it can be replicated.

I notice that when I edit a setting in the dashboard by being an admin myself, that it leaves a last edited by comment at the bottom of the config.php file. How can the user have did this and where did all the other variables go to?

The user said that he was submitting a post before this happened.
