    It needs a course of commands to find the script that is spamming , the logs and the outputs needs to be monitored.

    still.... use the below command to see from where the spams are initiating.

    head -1 /var/log/exim_mainlog | awk '{print $1}' ; awk '$3 ~ /^cwd/{print $3}' /var/log/exim_mainlog | sort | uniq -c | sed "s|^ *||g" | sort -nr | head --lines 15 | egrep -v ' cwd=(/$|/etc/csf|/var/spool/exim)' ; tail -1 /var/log/exim_mainlog | awk '{print From $1}'

    Hi,
    You have to find out spamming php script using below command also.
    Code:
    tail -n 1000 /var/log/exim_mainlog | grep /home
    
    The above command will display the spam script path.
