    WHM didn't hack you. You need to secure you server with a firewall and other such measures. There is a good guide here on the forums on the basics of securing a server. I highly recommend you hire one of the companies such as www.rfxnetworks.com to secure your server.

    RFX Networks has great free-open source Linux security software, and VERY easy to install! http://webhostgear.com is a great place too if your not so familiar with securing/running your own server box! :) You could also try hiring a System Administrator. That may be a bit of cash, but if you get a good one, it can save you a pain in your ass, that would never go away... lol

    I guess someone broke in using brute-force. Get brute force detection and use a longer / more difficult password.

    Yes, brute force detection can be found at the RFX website, id also suggest setting up your .bash_profile to send you an email with the host of whoever log's in via root... Also using MD5 or Sha1 for your password isant a bad idea either!

    PHP:
    <?php

    echo sha1("YourEncryptedPassword");

    ?>
    around 50 alpha-numaric characters.... makes it a bit difficult to crack! But make sure you save the password... dont want to loose it lol
