    Dear Members

    My dedicated server hackers can drop my two large forum database deleted and there is no tables but empty databse is there
    They use unsecure image hosting script another domain name same server cPanel/WHM
    when I check they upload some php file via image uploading destinations
    they did this two three times

    So how I can protect mysql server?
    if same server one account not drop another use with any script

    when i search I see some websites they advice Remove wildcards in the grant tables
    How I can do my dedicated server?

    Regards
    mvdig

    First of all I would suggest you to check if there are PHPShells are present under your server also check complete root level security. Second thing I would suggest you to disable remote MySQL as a precaution.

    Did you install chkrootkit OR rkhunter ? If yes, perform a check and see if it lists any rootkits.
