Massive Number of GoDaddy WordPress Blogs Hacked

sholdowa Re:Sadly nothing new with Wordpress (112 comments)

Your understanding of permissions is a bit off. What's the point of 701? 511/444 for files/dirs will perform just as well, and be logical too! If you want it really safe, then chattr +i, and ensure the partitions are mounted noatime. Obviously it'll be a pain to maintain the site, but the chances of it being hacked will diminish dramatically. Who said security was easy (:
