    hi all

    I found a spammer on a machine then I spied his directory and I found:

    /home/atsufra/public_html/cgi-bin]# ls
    ./ ../ cgiecho* cgiemail* entropybanner.cgi* randhtml.cgi*


    then locate cgiemail and I found a lot of directory with these files but not all:

    /home/geordieg/public_html/cgi-bin/cgiemail
    /home/artedeco/public_html/cgi-bin/cgiemail

    Not Spam

    It is not a spam program. It is a formmail alternative, which allows the person to write a customized form submission using it. It have been available for long time and it works pretty well, once you figure out how to use it properly. Plus it is provided by Cpanel, and it get installed in the user's directory when they use the cgiemail for form submission, since it cannot be done by cgi-sys due to requirement of few files to be used in their accounts when using it.
