    Well to secure it Id say Attack it.
    But first setup your Security.

    Install:
    - iptables (Firewall)
    - snort (NIDS)
    - tripwire (HIDS)
    - Update..

    Then.
    Portscan your server using nmap.
    Check if for Banners with Open Ports.
    Check for Known Exploits on Banner Answers using milw0rm, metasploit and Secwatch
    Vuldb Test using Nessus and/or CoreImpact
    Test Security Passwords using Hydra/Brutus/Medusa
    Check of PHP-Coding Mistakes (Assuming its a webserver)

    After all Fuzz your Server..

    or just,
    Hire a Peneration tester..

    Hope that helps.

    Heh but those Common Security Techniques doesnt give you a indept analyses of the Security of your Server.
    You MySQL might be all open. Or you might run a Vundl. version of OpenSSH.
    You have no idea how much people forget about there Security.
    And think. Its not going to happen to me.
