Can someone please explain me what does this log statement mean?

I’ve a website developed using PHP.

I encountered one major issue on my website, a security breach. So I checked the access logs of apache present at location “/var/log/apache2/access.log” on server.

I got following log which caused the error but I’m not able to understand what does each part of this log means. Can some one please give me step-by-step explanation of the below log?

70.39.61.42 – – [12/Jul/2015:17:05:12 +0000] “POST /user/register/javascript.void(0)/index.php?do=/user/register/ HTTP/1.1” 302 398 “http://www.mywebsite.com/user/register/javascript.void(0)” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/36.0.1985.125 Safari/537.36”

Actually this is the request which has created a major issue on my website. But I’m not able to figure out what parameters that request contained and what was the response, etc., etc.

Thanks in advance.
