Arrrggghhh - been hacked!

Over this weekend, I've discovered that at least two of my Wordpress sites had been hacked - specifically, the .htaccess files had been changed to attempt to download a Trojan onto the user's computer.I've had a look round, and I'm not sure exactly what I should do to protect myself against this in future. My .htaccess files had 644 permissions, which I've now changed to 444. Is there anything else I could / should do?TIA.GeraldSee More

"It is very interesting. Old sites do rate more highly than newer ones, but it would be very interesting is HTML5 was to blame. Waiting for Harvey's investigations ... Gerald"

Gerald Hornsby replied to Jim Cantrell's discussion Review please - in the group Website Reviews
