Linux Server Security + PLESK

Hi,

I have my domain hosted with 1and1 hosting services based on a linux server. Overnight everyday I have a CPU overload which cause my emails stop working normally, this cause instability and recurrent issue.

I guess my server has been compromised.

I need a Linux security expert to get my server logs, identify the issue and secure my server for these issues not to happen again.

I will need to receive the explanation of the issue and the corrective proposals before implementing them.
