Help me secure my site by helping me with file permissions

A while back, a group of hackers kept modify my PHP files by injecting viruses into the files. I want to know how they did it and how I can prevent it from happening again. It's probably a file permission issue so I'll need someone to assist me with setting the correct file permissions for my site and also explain to me what various things mean.

I want to make sure whoever takes this job is qualified so here is my test, if you can pass 1 of these tests, I'll consider you for the job, if you can pass both tests, I'll definitely consider you for the job. If you're unable to pass either tests, I wont even consider you.

Test 1:

Try to read the contents of this file and also modify the file:

[url removed, login to view]

Test 2:

Try to read the contents of this file:

[url removed, login to view]
