I have a permission problem on my server.

Wordpress sites (Installed via SolidCP) gets hacked then they are able to create files anywhere they want.

IIS appools created by SolidCP are able to create files in c:. How can I ensure that the IIS appools can't create files and folders where they want to.

thanks

You should grant everyone permission to your C drive, only administrators and system account should have access to your C drive.

Your hostingspaces directory should include read permissions for network service and solicpusers group.

Be cautions when applying these changes to a live server as you could brick it - so make sure you have system state backups before any changes.
