How can I prevent my site from being hacked?

Typically, most sites are hacked because of older and exploitable software, or world-writeable permissions (777). By checking monthly, or even bi-monthly for newer versions of the software installed on your site, you are making it much more difficult for a potential attacker to gain a foothold. World-writeable permissions are rarely needed in any situation. Instead, please use 755 for executables, and 644 for all other files.
