Why were we targeted?
You weren't. You get the same thing on, say, teeny little sites on shared hosting.* The site itself isn't the target; the aim is to break in and get upstairs. With luck, this will get you access to everything on the server-- and one of those is bound to have something worth stealing. Obvious analogy: You're not breaking into the janitor's closet to steal a mop. You're hoping to find a set of master keys.
* I've seen a few aggressive robot visits to my art studio's site, which is smaller than mine by orders of magnitude. (As noted elsewhere, this would seem to be mathematically impossible.) Obviously they weren't interested in the site itself. It was just a possible access point.
