Artisteer is generating a template. I don't believe there would be any vulnerabilities from the template level. What version of Joomla are you running? That's where I would expect possible vulnerable places for hacking to occur.
running 1.5.15 (latest at time of post) and all my extensions are up to date. I'm trying to figure out what is different about this install vs the other 30 I have.

Sorry to hear you got hacked. Your time might be better spent identifying the hack vector (look in the logs, your ISP might be of assistance) to figure out how exactly you got hacked. That will point you to whether or not Joomla is even a suspect, let alone it's template.

I agree w/ Tom. Through the template is a highly unlikely attack vector, imho Unless you have evidence that implicates the template, or even J! itself, your time might be better spent elsewhere.

I think there is no relation of hacking with installed template.
