Yes It happened as you said. They ask me to hire that they trust.

And then third party company make a report about my server : it is clean.

And in their report ; they hardenned and optimized  my apache and mysql server???
In that server no apache and no my sql server.
I had already used tools like rootkit tools, csf firewall etc.
They re-install this tools and attach these tools' result to their report. ( I have used last version but they didn't)

I had already done and make these steps.

I have used Softlayer for years and I am also happy with them.

The problem is giving  trust/certificate to company that behave or take action like me!
This show SL's understanding of Security.

But it is not the topic...

As you see that I am still working with softlayer.But not with SMC.

Thanks for your comment. Up to now, I have used last beta versions. I heard something like that sentence before .
But this time I decide to use stable version. Maybe later I will upgrade..

Yes, You are right. SL is excellent host. Because of this I am still custommer of SL.
But when I ask to them about my attack. They just replied me that it is not their job please hire third party management company.

As I said above it is not the topic

Thank you all
