Form mail is used by hackers to send out spam email, by relay and injection methods. If you are using matts script or a version of it, you may be in jeopardy.
Command to find pesky form mails:
find / -name “[Ff]orm[mM]ai*”
CGIemail is also a security risk:
find / -name “[Cc]giemai*”
Command to disable form mails:
chmod a-rwx /path/to/filename
(a-rwx translates to all types, no read, write or execute permissions).
(this disables all form mail)
If a client or someone on your vps installs form mail, you will have to let them know you are disabling their script and give them an alternative.
I can run you through the entire setup process and the command lines and explain it one step at a time for you. So you can handle this type of stuff on your own. Having someone else do it will just bog you down later on when you have to access it again.
Please provide the IP to this thread so we can further help you buddy!
Do you also know the hosting provider; that's a key feature/information needed to let you know if you are able to root the service. They might have a extra protection that we will be able to discover if we know the provider also and the IP address.
