Sometime ago I've registered #malwaretips , and today when I've logged in , I have found out that my site channel was registed by another user... How is this possible? And what can I do to get my channel back??

Your nickname expired in August from lack of use. If you go 60 days without using your nick, your nick and channels expire and are deleted from the system. My logs show this happened on August 28 for you:

04:53:17 PM GeekShed-Announcer: Expiring nickname JackMT (group: JackMT) (e-mail: <removed>)
04:53:17 PM GeekShed-Announcer: ChanServ: Deleting channel #malwaretips owned by deleted nick JackMT
04:53:17 PMGeekShed-Announcer: NickServ: deleting nickname group JackMT

Once a channel has been deleted, anyone is free to register it.
