    Hi...
    everyday it's a different user.

    I have seen two type of spammer caused for a vírus:

    1 - The user start sending spam from the server from smtp
    2 - The e-mail information go to a database and spam start like an attack from zumbis

    Both of cases they are making spam from the user e-mail authentication.

    I can only catch it when server is overload, /var partition is 100% (from thousend of messages that stay on there becouse hour limit)

    My question is.. how is the best way to detect and block thouse spam attacks?:eek:
