Does any one have any information on this guy EL_MuHaMMeD?

Last night I went to my site and it said Hacked by EL_MuHaMMeD, does any one know how he did this? I checked the Firewall and there was no log of any think, and also the windows server did register too. All he did was renamed the index.html file from the site with his.

    It could be anything, is your website running any Content Management System, or is it just basic html ?

    If it's just HTML, more than likely they brute forced your FTP password.

    One old section of the site had some OLD php script... I took it off, maybe that was the problem... but I will check the permisions here.
