    How to protect your vps?

    can any good host advise me how to protect a vps? My vps first got hacked and started brute force attacks on others and after three days my whole 3tb bandwidth got eaten. What should I do to avoid compromising my vps?

    Just check with your hosting provider, Whether they are providing you the Clean service or Used one? Just setup strong credentials, Setup up firewall security. you can even go with management service where management team will handle all these kind of issues.

    I would recommend to install good firewall like CSF. Also install LFD to prevent brute force attack.

    I vote CSF as well, Its amazing how many IP's try and brute force your servers. We must block around 30-40 a day.

    Install guide:

    Run regular virus/malware scans on your server.
    Regularly check your security logs.
    Disable Compilers.
    Use Apache 2.2 or higher (but obfuscate your version number)
    Sign on with a DDOS protection provider such as CloudFlare.
    Install rkhunter or chkrootkit. ...
    Secure WHM.
