He says he just chmod 777'ed the following folders
cgi-bin
cgi-bin yabb2 members
cgi-bin yabb2 boards
cgi-bin yabb2 messages
cgi-bin yabb2 modules

and then chmod 666ed their contents.  Something do do with being logged in to a user account instead of the web account.  I dont understand but he seems to.

What he's saying (without saying it) is that the server on your host is poorly configured and your account hasn't been given the proper permissions to actually run Perl scripts without opening them up to very bad possibilities.

You really need to talk to your hosting service about this issue.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
