    Hi there,

    A hacker managed to get outside the public_html folder into the root folder and deleted the public_html folder entirely. They left a couple of files behind claiming to have hacked the site.

    My question is how can someone get outside the WordPress installation folder to do that and how could I avoid that in future.

    All directories under public_html had 755 permissions and all PHP files had 644 permissions.
