    Without actually examining your server, no one would be able to tell you what happened. The concept of server security is a complex one, and outside the scope of what anyone here can explain without having relevant details about your specific situation. I would suggest you contact a server management company to look at this for you.

    Hello :)

    Yes, I also suggest consulting with a qualified system administrator for security advice. Security is really not something you can run a few commands and be done with.

    Thank you.
