    Is this a new vulnerability?

    Since you haven’t mentioned what version of WordPress you were using hen the hack took place, that’s impossible to say. Were you aware that a security-patch update was released recently (WordPress 4.8.3)?

    That said, the vector (way in) for the hack could have been via a plugin, theme or something else on the server.


    Or have I simply made a mistake?

    Only if you haven’t been keeping WordPress + its installed themes & plugins up to date. And you have only ever installed themes & plugins from trusted sources (like wordpress.org), haven’t you? Have you reviewed Hardening WordPress?


    Are they actually a white-hat collective just proving a point?

    A white hat would not have damaged your site.
