yeah, it could be, however i've never used that plugin. why don't you see the .htaccess and find any .htpasswd on your hosting, then rename it

here is the content of the index.php which is suppose to be the homepage of the wordpress (correct me if am wrong here):

Code:
<?php
/**
 * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
 * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
 *
 * @package WordPress
 */

/**
 * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
 *
 * @var bool
 */
define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require('./wp-blog-header.php');
?>

Yes, this is a "homepage of the wordpress" as you said - main file executed on every page load in your WordPress. However, It does not says anything because every wordpress index.php looks like this one. I don't think that the plugin have changed some main files.

Does your admin panel works? Is there any more plugins installed? This is really weird.

Seems that your are hacked because there is nothing suspicious in index.php and also in .htaccess. So, if you have a recent backup, try to restore that and secure things again.
