Site attacked with WordPress 3.0

    My website was recently hacked and I had a hard time figuring things out, but here’s what I’ve done. (not sure if this will prevent it from happening again…)

    First I tried to re-install WP. That didn’t work because the access had been denied.

    I tried using FTP to delete the WP files and folders. Access was denied again.

    Finally I changed the permissions to 755 – fortunately this allowed me to delete all of the old WP files/folders.

    I noticed that the ‘.htaccess’ file had been changed – I deleted the offending code and saved the new file.

    Now, I’m pretty sure that the permissions are set to 755/folders and 644/files.

    Is there any other loopholes that still exist in 3.0?
