Challenge - 1000s of hacking attempts each day on our websites and servers.
Solution - For websites: use complex passwords and use a WAF (web application firewall, like Cloudflare.com) to block hackers. For servers: use IP address restrictions on admin ports like 3389 (RDP; remote desktop access), close all used ports and set the file access (CHMOD) to 'read-only).
