    cPanel VPS sending out spam
    Hi Guys,

    I have got a cPanel VPS that is sending out spam, I have had a look at the files for the sites and can't find anything out of the ordinary, I have changed all passwords. Tried to tighten up the security more on the server.

    All I know is their are heaps of emails in the queue some are frozen.

    Is their anyone here that I could get have a look and see what I am missing.


    If you could private message me if you are able to help me out

    awk '$3 ~ /^cwd/{print $3}' /var/log/exim_mainlog | sort | uniq -c | sed "s|^ *||g" | sort -nr

    You can also use following command to find our file or user sending spam mails

    grep cwd /var/log/exim_mainlog | grep -v /var/spool | awk -F"cwd=" '{print $2}' | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
