    First, it appears that you haven't been keeping up with WordPress security updates. Your site is still running a version of WordPress (Version 3.3.1) that should have been updated some time ago - so there's at least one very large possibility when it comes to "How". As for "Why", they usually just do it because they can. For the "Lulz", and to spread malware.

    Start by working your way through this information:

    Here is what you need to do, you log into your cpanel here: http://iamleticiaf.com/cpanel once you are ther you need to go to your "phpMyAdmin", then you log in into your database and change your user password to a new one, here you have the instructions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password if u still need help with something send me an email "theizrael[at]gmail.com" good luck.
