    I have had an issue with a form script sending out emails, even on accounts that don't have users set up. I feel there may be something attacking my system. Is there anything like Malwarebytes for a server that can be used via Cpanel? Something can could scan your system for bugs or unwanted items? Or for someone who is much more advanced than me, is the form script issue sending out emails another problem all together? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello :)

    You can install ClamAV via:

    "WHM Home » cPanel » Manage Plugins"

    This includes the "clamscan" utility that you can use to search your system for viruses. EX:

    clamscan /home
    The following document may also be useful if you are attempting to prevent email abuse:

    cPanel - Prevent Email Abuse

    Thank you.
