Well, not MY password, but the web dude for the non-profit I was hostings 

Yeah, best I can tell it looks like a direct brute force.

I have another Joomla website ran by a clueful guy they were trying the 
same thing. (He is IT at Unum during the day, and the site seems updated
and clueful, we relocated the /administrator directory anyway)

Maybe a 0 day helped, but it seems to be a rapid targeted brute force
at the /administrator logins.

Keith, what did you see?
