    Thanks. Are these emails actually being sent out, or they're just 'false positives'?

    They are not false positives. You really would have better luck on the CSF forums with chirpy the developer of CSF.

    Does anyone know how to stop this?

    I mean, is there actually a script, or something / someone on the server that is spamming other people using the server?

    Looking at the error log,

    - Removed -

    I can clearly see that SPAM is being sent and would really like to stop that altogether.
