    Hacking

    I received a complaint that a user on my server attempted to hack or crack another server.

    I run a cpanel server with shared account.

    Can anyone tell which log file would tell which user attempted to connect to the 3rd party server.

    I would rather not say! They want me to sign up for a platinum support package @ $200 a month.

    Server will be null routed close of business today unless I find the offending user.

    Sound to me like they are out to get you.

    Anyway I recommend you check out Rack911 or PSM if you need outside support help.

    few other tips:

    You many also want to check your user accounts for SSH/php shell script.

    Also if you give your users SSH access, kill it.

    Also if you know when it started and had a user sign-up that day, most likely it's that person.
