How to prevent hacking

Step 1: The most important thing to do is keep your passwords a secret. If you must give a password to someone, be sure to change it when they are done using the access. Don’t write your passwords down or share them with too many people. Periodically change your passwords.
Step 2: Along the same idea, you need to make sure your personal computer does not have viruses, trojans, keyloggers, etc.
Step 3: Keep your scripts and downloaded programs updated. Always upgrade to the latest version of your blog, forums, shopping carts, etc.
Step 4: Do not have writable file permissions. The correct permissions are normally 755 and 644, and you can check these in your File Manager. Most users know to avoid 777 permissions, but you really want to avoid any permission settings which allow Group and World writing.
