    Is it possible to block proxy scripts from being created on my web server or being used? People keep creating accounts with proxies on them. Like, Glype and CGI Proxy. I would like to know if it's possible because they take alot of cpu. Thanks!

    There does not seem to be an option to ban specific softwares. As long as cgi is enabled for the accounts, they can install variety of proxy softwares and will be practically impossible to block all of them. So, if cgi is not necessary, you can completely disable cgi for that account(s).

    Hello :)

    You could disable CGI for an account via:

    "WHM Home » Account Functions » Modify an Account"

    However, there are no native features with cPanel/WHM that will prevent the use of an application based on it's specific functionality. You may want to develop a custom script that scans for this type of software, and setup a cron job for it so it runs regularly and emails you the results.

    Thank you.
