    a bit more info?

    were you using a cms (wordpress)?
    shared hosting or dedicated?
    if shared, have you asked your host for logs?

    Many possibilities, you have a weak password, used the same password on another site, installed a bad script or "nulled" version of something with bad code in it, the box you're on is rooted, etc. The possibilities are endless.

    AHT is "Albian hacker team", they generally look for the same holes and keep score of how many sites they have compared to other groups.

    well it's not very hard to hack into linux especially if your site is just using the super standard "xxxx.com/cpanel" as its main access.

    If the hacker has a lot of server, he can easily gain access into your cpanel within few weeks

    Dude, "Not very hard" and "a few weeks" can't go together in the same sentence :)
