	If this isn't the first time, perhaps you should start thinking
about what you're doing wrong. If you're bent on using RedHat, make sure
you keep up to date with their patches and errata, there's a ton of them
for RedHat 7.2. Next, what services do you have running? The crackers had
to get in somehow, and it's probably through some service you really don't
need.
