The odds are good that your being cracked had nothing to do with the
kernel version you were running.

You need to find out:
a) How your systems were cracked.
b) How you could have prevented that.
c) How to harden a system.
d) How to audit and monitor a system.
e) How to actively maintain a secure system.
Choice of Linux distribution or kernel version really isn't going to
help you much there (minor exceptions)..
