    Alot of spam sent..

    Hey guys,

    I've been using the same server for the last 3 years, I run a few websites but they are small, im running CentOS and the latest cPanel WHM.

    Recently i've had emails bouncing back as my IP has been blacklisted due to spam, Thought it was odd.. So went through my logs and statistics and found a few things..

    This is the report for the last 2 days.. "Exim statistics from 2011-03-21 20:33:03 to 2011-03-23 22:36:09"

    As you see, thats some serious spam.. but how can i find where its originating from? I've changed "Prevent “nobody” from sending mail" to "On" but its still going..

    I think that you are using dedicated IPs? Do you host other sites? Maybe someone use spam sending software there?

    Close port 25 on your firewall.

    You really spout off a lot of useless information that could be detrimential to helping solve issues.

    OP, have you looked at your apache logs to see if any scripts are ran way more than others? You could have an exploit on the server from a non-updated script.

    If you look at the que and see the same username show up frequently, its possible the issue resides in that users account.

    Do you use suphp or fastcgi?
