Solution For DigitalOcean VestaCP Compromise Problem

Since the recent vestacp breach, I’m guessing that a lot of virtual servers digitalocean wide had a big issue and as of now I checked again, vesta rolled back its releases for Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 and we need a good alternative for that. Also I’m a noob server wise so I would be glad rather than reading people ranting about DO or vesta, it would be pretty good to find a quick and efficient solution for the problem at hand. Thank you forwards…

The security vulnerability just secured by all the sites i just switch to Centos Web Panel and this alternative is pretty good as compared to vesta.

Right now it appears that this vulnerability is being exploited only against VestaCP servers using the default ports. Our support team has written this guide on how you can change the ports used. Other users have also reported that when they do not have clients needing to access VestaCP that restricting access to VestaCP to only their IP or only to connects tunneled over SSH also provides protection.
