Someone hacked my one Server…

Regarding the message I posted earlier today about what happened to my one server. Someone hacked into a server of mine that I had set up for testing out some software months ago. They hacked into it, because it was a mail server, and they then blasted out a whole lot of spam.

I have told the hosting company that I will actually delete the server once I have checked if there is anything there that I need.

I have, for the time being, shut the server down so that nobody can do anything on it.

A friend of mine who was very technical, had actually warned me about this weakness a long time ago, and I’m afraid his warning has come true.

But I wanted to test out something that was critical to me.
