A good hacker can get access no matter what precautions you take.  No
computer system is totally secure, the only thing you can do is take all
possible precautions and keep current on security risks.  If your algorithms
are really valuable, then you may want to invest in the ZEND Encoder
(http://www.zend.com/store/products/zend-encoder.php) which allows you to
deploy your scripts without revealing the source code.  That way, even if
someone manages to get access to the scripts, they will not have access to
the actual code.
