Job Description

You will not be provided any access to server, we will ask you queries and you have to reply to it. Server access might be provided only in extreme case.

Dedicated Server Environment

1&1 Dedicated Server – Linux

Parallels Plesk Control Panel

Initial tasks to be done

1) We need to block FTP access to all IP addresses except the ones we use.

Is it possible to block FTP at all and access account via any other serial console or SSH/SFTP etc?

If we are going to add IP address in blocking then we need to allow IPs in the range 83.34.*.* as we use dynamic address, is it possible?

2) You have to check the logs thoroughly and find out what are the security compromises?  We know that we are getting FTP attacks

3) We see Socket duplicate problems, which requires fixing.

4) Our server is being shut down automatically, either it could be due to Attack or due to hardware problem. In either case we need to find out exact problem and get it rectified.

5) Configure firewalls on all domains/IPs and any other protecting mechanism available

6) Block unused open ports

Once above important tasks are done we need following work to be done

7) Create cron jobs/or via facility available to backup site regularly. 1&1 dedicated server provides FTP details to store the backup file but it doesn’t provide the way to do it.

So we have to use 3rd party free available script or software to do it.

8) Create Server monitoring trigger so that if server goes down we are informed by e-mail

9) Stats – send monthly stats report for each domain hosted automatically via e-mail

10) Any db/disk optimization for maximum utilization
