How to protect a vps server against virus and hacking?

HI

We have a Linux Server (VPS) configured with WHM and Cpanel in order to offer hosting services, there are more than 60 sites and everything used to be working very well, but since a few months ago we have had alot of virus and hacking issues. I know this situations should be fixed by the datacenter but we need to to develop a strategy in order to prevent and/or correct those problems faster and even before than datacenter.

We would like your suggestions about a list of points to be performed during continuous monitoring in order to avoid these problems.

Thanks in advance.

Well basically has been malicious code (maybe I should call it malware) and defacement (like the attached image).

In other cases the hacker could get into WHM and create new hostings.

First rule of incident handling is not to lie to people trying to help you.

I am sorry if I didn't explain myself correctly, but I believe "lie" does not fit in this conversation.
Madunix,  how would you recommend to do the Auditing and Loggin?
