Any knowledge of hacking issues?

Hi,
One of my sites was hacked yesterday. I've never had this happen before. The path that was given is my CMS folder. The hacker is Himanshu Dhiraj Mishra - supposedly an ethical hacker. I don't understand his purpose.

I just want to know if there is a security issue and I missed a fix for it. Also any info about this guy and why he does this.

I've never had a site hacked before and this wasn't exactly how I was planning to spend this day!

Thank you for any info you can provide. I'm working on re-establishing the site on another server but I want to make sure this won't happen again. I have much better things to do with my days.

The site is townmarshfield.com

Thank you,
Laura

Thought I'd add a screenshot of the guy posting about this on Google+. It was nice of the other guy to let me know.
