There are a lot possibilities how someone can attack your server and change root password, specially over ssh. There is no such thing as 2FA for this. Even if you protect the root account with 2FA in VIRTUALIZOR does not mean it is protected when used for ssh access.

Take the well known measures for protecting root access (setting up ssh keys and disable password authentication for example)
If your password has been changed twice in short time your server for sure is compromised with a backdoor shell or similiar, so you should run commercial grade security software like ESET File Security on your server.
