    I was wondering what measures I could take in securing a webhosting box from rootkits and injections scripts etc. I am not all sure what will run with cpanel and whm so was wondering what everyone else uses. I was looking at running AIDE or tripwire how do these perform with cpanel. Also what can be chattr +i or set to read-only that will allow cpanel to function. I want to be able to prevent as much as I can if a rootkit hits a server. Or make it impossible for the rookit to even run. All and any ideas are welcomed.

    thanks

    Hi,

    Tripwire works fine with cpanel. Try with chkrootkit this is even better than tripwire . It can prevent all attacks.

    Regards.

    Really? That's news to me. Are we talking about the same software?
