If you heard about the latest virus that affects the BASH utility – then you’ll know that it affects Linux servers.  CobourgServer uses Linux as do 80-90% of all servers so it is/was affected.  However, the makers of the Linux version used (CENTOS) have created a patch and it has been applied to the CobourgServer box.  Therefore there is currently no vulnerability in any sites using this server – at least not from this bug. 

There are approximately 100 attempts per day to hack into this server but they are blocked by the Firewall I use – which is made and supported by the English company Way to The Web Ltd.  This is updated regularly and in 9 years, no-one has got past it although there have been some false positives with legitimate users being locked out.
