I'm the administrator in a website in Wordpress 3.3.1, in which I only have access to the dashboard.
It has more than 200 pages, and yesterday, all of a sudden all pages were in the trash bin.
Not permanently deleted, no user deletions, or password changes, no other changes, just all content in the trash.
I'm sure I didn't do it, and the other administrator swears he didn't either. Looking at the audit trail, I found all the deletion actions, all done within the same minute, but it doesn't show the user( the IP is from our site, so it should be somebody from my company?)

Our service provider already restored the website from the backup, but I'd like to know if this is a symptom of an attack, a Wordpress malfunction or something else.

Any clue about this?
