URGENT CentOS Server Hardening

In Progress


Im looking for someone to harden my VPS as it has been hacked TWICE and got all my files/sql deleted. The server was hardened previously but im not sure if the job was well done.

Im looking for someone whose trustworthy and have wide-experience in system administration to secure my server as much as it will be impossible to hack without the passwords.

Install Antivirus

Setup Firewall

Server Hardening

SQL Hardening

PHP Hardening (wordpress hardening if possible)

Setup logging

SSH Hardening

Disable Unwanted SUID and SGID Binaries

Update Operating System and Security Patches

cPanel/WHM Hardening

Secure the server from Rootkits/SQL Injections

Secure FTP ( currently ftp can see root files )

[url removed, login to view] /[url removed, login to view] hardening

IPTables setup

RKhunter installation

I would prefer the system admin to be professional, be able to give advice. Must have SKYPE or WHATSAPP for communication. Be able to speak and type fluent english.

The server has been reformatted once already with my files and all other files gone. I do not want such things to happen again. I hope I can trust you.

Thank you.
