    It's difficult to pinpoint the specific vulnerability or exploit used by an attacker to hack your server or websites. One could speculate on common methods (e.g. symlink attack), but it really requires a qualified system administrator to investigate the logs on your server and determine the source of the attack. There is a thread here where a similar question is asked:

    As far as security going forward after you have reinstalled the OS and cPanel and restored the accounts, the following document is a good place to start:

    Thank you.
