[PHP] File Permissions?

Hi Gang:

We had an incident happen at the college where I teach — the IT guy said:

> After further inquiry, it appears a bad guy used a php vulnerability injection over http to enter into a folder on CITW.   This was made possible because the permissions were misconfigured (execute was set to 755 instead of normal 644). 

My understanding of permissions is that 755 is normally thought of as secure — is that not true?

My thanks in advance for any clarification or advice.

Thank you,
