    I downloaded that cpanel remote exploit program you mentioned, it's 6 months old.

    How do you know for sure they got in using that program?
    I didn't try to connect to my server with it, but I really doubt that this software was developed for a new exploit as it is 6 months old already.

    It seems more like a general cpanel port scanner and execute command tool. Maybe they got in through another hole (not a specific CPanel hole) and just used this software to execute commands?

    CPanel 5 did have a remote exploit bug, but that's a while ago.
