I should have used a couple of more words here . It was made impossible to log in and the usernames might or might not have been changed. However as I re-installed a backup of some 10 hours before the hack all usernames were restored again (together with the rest). Some posts were lost in the process of course.

As to the reason for changing the password. The hacker got access to the admins interface by retrieving the username and password of an admin from the database. User passwords are not visible from the admins panel, but it is not entirely clear to me if the exploit also allows to access the credentials of other users.
