    I use CSF/LFD firewall (Thank you Chirpy). It seems that anytime I get a message from LFD about an email relay alert, I check the directory and find cgiecho/cgiemail installed in the customers cgi-bin. Obviously, it has some flaws. I have 2 questions.

    1. Why does cpanel still allow for this terrible script to be installed in Cpanel?

    2. How can I use WHM to remove it from the available scripts. I have checked the feature manager, and there seems to be no ability to uncheck specific cgi-center scripts such as cgi-email.

    I despise this script. It is an abomination.
    :mad:

    Thank you.

    part of the problem too is that even if you delete it from the user's cgi-bin and maybe don't even let them have a cgi-bin, you can still get to it by going to cutomerdomain.com/cgi-sys/cgiemail or customerdomain.com/cgi-sys/formmail.pl or whatever. I've recently started removing the executable bit from a few of these. I don't know if that will survive and upgrade, but we'll see.

    I wish cpanel would allow it to be removed completely and not be installed unless a server admin actively installs it. It seems to me to be a bad piece of software and I can see no valid reason for cpanel to have a spam portal installed in the system cgi bin. It is maddening.

    Unchecking it from Feature list gives this message when accessed.

    Not enough IMHO.
