That depends almost completely on what your site does and how it is
done. For general things, you can disable PHP's register_globals
option (you'll find that in php.ini, or you can write a short snippet
that unregisters the globals like phpBB forums do, or .htaccess can
sometimes help with PHP switches) and mysql_real_escape_string()
specific input before inserting into your database to prevent SQL
injection (magic_quotes may be enabled already, it's preferable to
disable that and escape stuff yourself so you can be sure it's working
all of the time).

You can also give mod_security a try, some hosts implement it
(DreamHost does). It covers a some things you might miss.
