    Security Scanner for Shared Hosting


    I've recently inherited a few shared hosting machines (plesk and cpanel) that have around 1500 websites on them. Every month or two, I am receiving support requests concerning XSS/iframe injection/ftp cracks that usually involve the customer running old php or cgi scripts.

    I know this is a common issue in shared hosting environments, and was wondering if there are any tools out there I can use to scan the content we host for issues?

    Today I had a support call from a guy who was running a perl-based chat script developed in 1996.
