Hardening Wordpress on Dreamhost PS

Wordpress.org gives some standard suggestions on how to make wordpress more secure: http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress
same stuff in a video here:

some of topics were
making sure the files and directories and chmodded right
putting wp-config a directory above root
changing the name of the admin account to something else…
bunch of other stuff

I already installed three blogs now I’m feeling paranoid about WP vulnerabilities.

Has anybody’s wordpress blog been hacked here on PS? What happened?
