    I am in the midst of a spam flood seems like the spammers are using the "nobody" user to send email through the cpanel server I run. Is there a way to stop the nobody user from being able to relay?

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, there's an option in WHM > Tweak Settings > to prevent Nobody from being able to send email. Of course, then no PHP scripts will be able to send email.

    Re-compile php with phpSuExec and SuExec then all scripts send mail out as the user which makes it easier to trace who sent the spam.

    There is a exim configuration fix that can be found using a search for @nobody. Search is always your best friend.

    This is the thread, look for the post by nisse:
