    Looks like cPanel updated the modsec.conf file to include all those bcc and cc issue and that broke all the webmail that i run under mod_perl (which runs as nobody as suExec and mpd_perl don't go together).

    Yes i was hit by this on 22nd Nov (spam issue) through one of the clients sripts and blocked that script (insecire as per terms of service) and replaced with a more secure cgi/pl script. No issues of SPAM sent out so far from these scripts though there have been repeated attempts. Was blocked out by AOL but after the changeover, just sent a email to them and our server is off their blacklist, though we are still recieveing the TOS notification for all mails thatbwere sent out on 22nd Nov 2005.

    I just checked my modsec_conf and there has been no additions from any cPanel update including this nights nightly security update, which has just been carried out.

    I also checked the default and the modsec_user.conf with the same result - no cPanel edits or additions.

    Are you sure it was a Cpanel update include?
