  • Check your server and website for vulnerabilities. You have the accesslogs. Also check for backdoors. And there are many free penetration testing tools like OWASP ZAP. – Daniel Ruf Dec 2 '15 at 23:17


As a baseline, please reference the NIST Special Publication 800-44 Version 2 Guidelines on Securing Public Web Servers.

Also, take a look at this post on securing Apache web servers.
