    Interestingly enough, in a hosting situation the servers are pretty locked down to prevent user escalation and someone getting root on the box itself.

    It really all comes down to your security measures. USE SECURE PASSWORDS, Chmod your files properly, remove/modify anything that can identify the script, and script version, don't install scripts that are ridden with SQL injections, RFI/LFI and other vulnerabilities. Make sure your PHP.ini is locked tight, encrypt your databases, don't use default database names. if a file is only being called locally, it doesn't need to be in your web directory! Use your htaccess file to block common attacks, and deny access to additional pages for the attacking IP address.

    These are some of the most important steps you need to take to at least have a chance at not being hacked. Every system can be hacked. If something can be created, it can be broken. Thinking you are secure is fooling yourself. Doing what you can to monitor, and prevent known threats is all that can be done.

    Hopefully this will help you, and maybe other lurkers.
