    If you are referring to an outbound UDP flood or DoS attack, you need to SSH in and run `ps faux` while it is happening. You will probably see a PHP or apache process using very high CPU. using tools like lsof -p $pid or similar should help you track it down.

    If you mean spamming, you need to enable detailed logging in exim config file and monitor the logs to trace the spammer.

    Please provide the exact issue so we can help you.

    Cheers!!!
