Successful? My ass. Some stupid script kiddie managed to hack "my"
server because I let a friend run Joomla there and one of its components
allowed remote file uploads.

Luckily, the uploaded php script didn't work and my server did not
become a spam sending zombie and I did not have spend weeks to get it
out of blacklists again.

Sadly, I still had to spend a night to cleanly set up the machine again.
