    I have strange problem with CPanel server.
    There is no files
    /var/log/messages and
    /var/log/secure

    Syslog is configured correctly, syslog restart and reboot doesn't help and there is enough free space at /var/log

    Where is the problem may be?

    Thank you for any advise.

    touch /var/log/messages
    touch /var/log/secure

    restart syslog, and it will probably log again

    I've tried that, even tried to reboot the server after creating the files. Still have no luck.

    I've just have run chkrootkit. One strange thing is:

    Port 465 warning is usual for CPanel, as I know, but 1524 and 31337 .. is very strange.

    Another strange thing is:

    I have no idea what to do with it at the moment. Will investigate, but, maybe somebody already has experience and some free minutes to point me to the correct way.

    Relax a bit :)

    465 bindshell I think is normal. I get that also. and I saw the scalper warning before and then I upgraded to latest chkrootkit and found that was it. Try that.

    I am happy that my server is not hacked (possibly, but I do want to beleive it :) )

    But the main problem that forced me to open this thread still exists. For some strange reason my main logs (messages and secure) don't work.

    Did anybody experienced similar problems?
