I have a
VPS hosted on
Godaddy, managed with
30-50GB a month, but then it went up to
1200+GB in one day. It appears my server has been compromised. The thing is my website itself uses only
45GB per month.
I paid to increase the bandwidth and checked, my website bandwidth is still at
45GB, But my server is at
1293GB. A couple hours later, it spiked again to
4983GB, although I was enrolled in bandwidth overage protection then. It is now suspended. They want me to pay again to cover the overage in order for them to check the problem.
How can I stop it? What's the likely cause of it? Someone suggested disabling access to all ports except SSH. I am on a VPS with Godaddy using Cpanel. No one has root access to the server except me.
I know I really don't need a VPS at the moment, but it is really stopping me from moving forward with my plans.
