on a vps I created a new account yesterday, the account is "dipenden" username, today a user acceded and uploaded a zip file phishing on this ftp account but from cpanel of another account, this is access_log:

IP-NOAUTH-USER - dipenden [12/20/2013:11:31:25 -0000] "GET /cpsess0000000/frontend/x3/files/img/fileactions/codeedit.png HTTP/1.1" 200 0 "http://www.anotherdomnainonsamevps:2082/cpsess4836193581/frontend/x3/files/selfile.html?dir=%2fhome%2fdipenden%2fpublic_html%2fimage&file=WellsfargoOnline.zip" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0" "-"

Hello :)

The ports used to access services such as cPanel/WHM are accessible over any domain name that points to the server. Thus, if a user had valid authentication details, they can use any domain name that points to the server to access cPanel. You are welcome to open a support ticket so we can take a closer look and verify it's not anything more than that:

You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

Thank you.
