In a co-hosted environment, a site hosted along could be vulnerale leading to the hijacking of the server (getting a 
tunnel to the server shell and then escalating its privilege to root). Once the server is compromised, the attacker 
could attack each site hosted on server. And take my work, it has now become so easy that a script-kiddy can compromise 
entire web server within minutes.
