Mailman would not just do this on it's own.  Something else had to 
happen, and I'm guessing it was probably someone restoring data from a 
backup that wiped out your current production environment.

Nothing that you're talking about could possibly happen with the 
standard version of Mailman with the standard cron jobs.

If you're running cPanel, please take a look at FAQ 6.11 at 

You need to talk to your provider or cPanel, to see what they must have 
done to you.
