any open ports on the internet are likely to attract attention of the 
'Black Hats'
this is why you have been advised to check your firewall settings
you should only expose the ports that are absolutely necessary

for a web server these would be 80 & 443

currently you have many other services also open that probably should not 
if you check the logs for those services you will probably find even more 
login attempts (I hope they have failed)
