Lately my server goes down many times and I have to reboot it in order to start up again.
I use CentOS for my web server and notice an email send from my server log that Brute-Force Attack detected in service log from IP(s) 188.8.131.52
This is kind of getting really annoying and felt that my server is not in a good position.
I really don't have much control on my server at the moment because the person who set up the server not able to give me the root password of my server at the moment because he is out of the country.
What can I do to prevent this?
Or the only option is to wait for
root password and install some protection script?
EDIT: Seriously at the moment I post my server went down again!
