Okay, there is no need to panic.

Go to this link: http://joomlatp.com/joomla-database/recover-joomla-database-password.html

Provided you have access to your server, this will work.

Simply go to PHPMyAdmin and open up your Joomla! database. Then follow that information in the guide.

I just noticed, when logging back in today, that someone has appended a new hash to my md5 hash in teh jos_user table.
So someone is able to access the table?

How can I fix this?

Hello,

I would change your database username/password including your tables along with your ftp password - Whoever this was might have had access to your config.php file too, where all these variables are stored.
