In some cases, hardening your /tmp, /var/tmp and /dev/shm or other measures should be done manually.
In all cases security measures should be done manually by trained professionals who know what they're doing, not by some kid who downloaded something off of the internet in their dad's basement.
Securing your server is not an automated process. Sure, some of it can be (firewall administration, log rotation, etc), but that's just the small end of the spectrum

Relying on any automated script to secure your server is a very, very, bad idea. Especially since their site says it was tailored for OS versions that are end-of-life and their script has not been updated in almost 3 years. So aside from not being of any benefit, it can potentially actually do harm by modifying your system to what the standards were 3 years ago (mysql 4.1, APF firewall, etc.)
