    Hello,

    First of all change your root password of your VPS and deleted the all unwanted account which are created on your server. Also disable the all shell access of your cPanel user. And try to scan your server through LMD and Clamscan

    Hello,

    If your server is root compromised, then the only solution is to reload the operating system, re-install cPanel and restore from backups. There is no guarantee that you will clear out all possible entry points that the hacker may have already put in place.
