How do i secure my Centos Server?
Hi all, first post and linux noobie.
I have a dedicated server running centos 4 , im using it to learn linux and server management mainly, i have a website up and running on the server.
My hosting company contacted me the other day to tell me my server was being used to run a phishing site.I switched off apache and deleted the phishing files.Im worried about switching on apache again without knowing how to prevent future abuse.
I patch the server regularly doing a YUM update.
However i need to know how i can stop this happening again, what additional
security can i put in place?
