    Hello,
    I apologize if this question sounds dumb to many here.

    Is there a way to determine which user uploaded a file into the public_html directory or any subdirectory (not into a /username/ directory)?
    I can see the upload date, but not the user.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    As a reseller, you are limited to the amount of logs you have access to review. You could try downloading the "Raw Access" logs for the affected account to see if you can find the log entry that matches the timestamp associated with the creation of the malicious file:

    Thank you.
