    helo

    sometime i got message "A user recently uploaded a CGI script than can send email"

    and it shows following script that indicate potentially send big number of email (spam)

    so from this case, i want to ask. when we create a new package, there is an option "CGI access". how important is that?
    if we uncheck "CGI access", what will happen next?
    since allow CGI access can cause spammer
