    Hi.

    A am setting up a dedicated server for the first time using WHM + Cpanel.

    Could anyone please advise on what security measures need to be taken?

    Thanks a lot

    You might want to hike on over to ConfigServer Services and get them to harden your server. Money well spent, even after 6 years I still use these guys.

    They have a list there describing what they do, well worth it. Also get cxs while you're there - upload scanner - think it's free with their hardening package. Their anti-spam (Mailscanner) package rocks too, almost no spam gets through.
