Unusal System attacks on bran new Server.

Hello.

I just setup a bran new server fresh out of the box. I've installed CSF firewall and have noticed for a new machine it's been getting a few hit's here and the. One thing I find unusual is that for a bran new machine why would it get hit much at all.

The only thing I have on it is cpanel/ whm/ centos 5.5 os 64 bit. I haven't even begun to use it in production yet.
It's even on a fresh ip block set that my ISP gave me.

Just wondering why the hits on it. The good thing my firewall has been blocking the Chinese and Koreans that have been hitting it.
