It could be. On the surface the permissions changed to 755 sounds like one of the things that's been happening lately in the rash of hacked sites. Also as a regular in this forum, I can't recall a case where file permissions were changed magically by a dreamhost mistake.

The doorway in those cases is usually found to be some insecure theme or plugin someone installed because they think it's perfect for their needs, but came from an untrusted source.

Support is usually pretty good about the answers they give, but they like anyone can make a mistake.

Also the last time shared server mothman showed up on dreamhoststatus was Sept 2nd, 2011 http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/2011/09/0...-hardware/
