    your problem is not wordpress per se, but the security of the webhosting site.
    The web server needs to be secured and then YOU need to be sure that the
    directory permissions are not wide open ( rwxrwxrwx is really dumb) when you upload pages.

    The other major issue is any forms that invoke SQL database actions - -
    you need to know how to prevent "Sql Injection" attacks.
