    I want to show my cpanel.

    I created a new account. the account name is zencart.

    below image is the cpanel.

    you can see number 1 red box. there are 2 ftp users by default once I created a new account.

    and then you can see number 2 red box.

    I created by me.

    but maybe tomorrow I can see a ftp user starting with

    i don't make the ftp user.

    it is created by someone.

    below is the image.

    do you think the ftp user starting with is created by default by cPanel.

    every account had that ftp user starting with

    so i removed all of them.


    If so, i am happy, if not, my server is hacked?

    please let me know how to solve it.
