Another valuable post....why do you bother posting if you don't offer advice..or at least comment further than your nearly worthless 2 cents.

It doesn't seem useful to be honest, APF is not as good as CSF.

I wouldn't trust it with a barge pole.

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.)

UPDATE April 8, 2009:

I don't think the script can secure your current servers.
