What are the best practices for a Debian Squeeze + Grsecurity/PAX based system when multiple, and therefore insecure, websites must run on the same server? I mean how can I mitigate an attack, so that if UserX's website got hacked, the other hosted sites remain intact etc.? Are there any good guides on this topic?
