Is it a good idea to CHMOD everything to Read only? (444) Would this prevent some security issues? What negative consequenses would this have? Is there any files that need to be 644 as the standard is?

If the owner does not have write access (the first 6), then you can't even overwrite the file yourself. And that's such a pain if you need to upgrade your code.
Honestly, 644 would be fine. You'd most likely be hacked by SQL injections. If they already have file control access, then they are probably good enough to delete your files anyway.
