    Hi

    we have different Cpanel server, this week we got a large number of account on different server that have upload .pl or .cgi spam script, checking the logs we have found that these files are upload by FTP

    Mar 8 21:26:56 pure-ftpd: (user@ips) [NOTICE] /home/user//public_html/scgi-bin/cgimail.pl uploaded (1331 bytes,

    as we can see in the log we dont have any failed login before of the upload so seem that there isnt any brute force attack

    i confirm that we already use complex ftp password with the whm generator and we have enable the brute force attack system on cpanel
