Accompanying to the growing utilization and dependency on the internet and the ICT (Information and Communication Technology), the threat by hacking, malicious code and virus are rising as serious problems. Especially, the single server which is hosted by professional hosting companies is exposed to diverse attack, and then abused as malicious server. Even though responsibility for the security problem on the singe server is not to hosting company but to single server user, almost of users have little security awareness about the single server security. Thus, in this paper, the authors first survey the cause of increase of a single server, and then investigate reasons inducing vulnerable points of the single server.
