when I click start, it freezes for about 5 minutes, and then this appears:

Do note that if your server jar was infected, chances are your plugins are too; you're gonna wanna delete all jars on the server and reinstall them

and malware generally tends to get onto VPSes the exact same way as everywhere else; somebody accidently downloaded an infected plugin. Looks like the control server was recently killed, and so some people have probably been connected to a botnet for a good little while without noticing as stuff was generally "fine"
