I have a Wordpress site running on a LAMP stack running in AWS EC2 that got compromised today. The hacker encrypted the small MySQL database with a Bitcoin address instead of the expected tables.
I would like to install some AntiVirus and Malware software as a future deterrent. It wouldn’t have done me a lot of good in this case, but I realized that the folks before me didn’t set this up.
1/ Do you have any recommendations for software that plays nicely with Amazon Linux (basically RedHat)?
2/ Do you have a favorite set of “go-to” installation and configuration instructions that you could share? I need something fairly simple to setup & automate updating heuristics and protecting the system.
Thanks for your help!
