We are looking for a Linux security expert to:

1. Analyze a forum that is hacked
2. Take action to protect the forum
3. Document your actions so that the owners of the forum can repeat the steps in the future

A quick turnaround is required.

Background:

* Hacked vBulletin 4.2.0 forum which we installed
* Running on Cent OS VPS running Apache, PHP with APC
* Most likely issue is lenient folder permissions

The hack consisted of (on several events):

* The existing .htaccess file being edited
* Additional .htaccess files created in sub-folders
* JavaScript files appended with DocumentWrite code to create an iFrame in the browser window.

When applying, please briefly state the most likely cause, in your opinion, of this hack.
