How to re-generate root login in a compromised droplet?
I have a Droplet running in CentOS was compromised. The root user was removed and the attacker added a super user with the username as bl33dz
Now I am unable to reset / login in to the droplet. Support team booted my Droplet into Recovery Kernel, but still I am unable to reset the Root password and not able to recover the root username. How can I re-gain access to the droplet now?
