I have been thinking about setting up a dedicated full node to support the Iota network.
In this case would be running some variant of Linux on a dedicated server that would at least meet the requirements mentioned in this article. The server will be configured with common security features (automatic patching, use of SSL through letsencrypt.org, and so on).
However as I am still learning about Iota I wanted to check if there are any specific security considerations that I should be aware of.
I realize that one of the features of Iota (and other cryptocurrencies) is the security provided by the different nodes working together to validate transactions. So I probably should not be overly concerned about the server being hacked.
Still questions like 'is it advisable to run a simple ("single page") WordPress website on the same server?' come to mind.
Are there any security considerations when configuring a server to run as a full node?
