one account using another's bandwidth??? strange issue

    Ok, never seen this before in my life. There is one account under user #2 using user #1's account bandwidth. Now, the domain with user #1 is only 9MB total and topped off 50GB this month already due to #2's zip / rar files (housed inside its own /home account) yet using #1's bandwidth. Very strange.

    I ran /scripts/fixcommonproblems

    Now, user #1 shows as its own owner and same for user #2 (different owners)

    Here is a sample from webalizer

    /~ukscouse/Volume1/UKSCOUSEHOUSE VOLUME 1 (MIXED BY DJ CROZ).zip
    /~ukscouse/paul/Cascade - Altitude.mp3
    /~ukscouse/paul/Tim Dawes - Crazy (Quadrasonic Mix).mp3

    Now, as you can see the person (my customer on the server) had mod_userdir off so I just enabled it back on again.

    Still, how is it possible that this user #2 is using #1's bandwidth? That is what confuses me.

    Any help would be appreciated.
