What is this about?

someone, or a bot script, probably gained access to your account., especially if you used a common or weak password or you use the same password everywhere on the web and an account that didn't properly hash the stored passwords has been compromised.

 

there are other possibilities, such as someone managing to reset your password, which would allow them to gain access to your account, but if you were able to log in to your account using your existing password without any problems, that isn't the case.

 

or perhaps you have remained logged in since your last real activity on the forum and your computer/browser/network has been compromised and someone got the 'remember me' cookie value and was able to impersonate you on the forum.
