    Evening all,

    This morning my VPS crashed and took ages to reboot. Since then I have been getting a server overload email,
    which upon investigation seems to be a spam script working.

    I have PHP and SuEXEC running and also CSF..

    I have rebooted the server..
    Restarted the exim.
    I have now set the email out per hour limit from 500 to 250
    And i have :
    in the advanced exim file..

    I have since received a few more error emails..

    Just after each warning i then get an email stating :
    So i have suspended the jcuk account...
    But thats the short term answer...

    I have scanned his public html folder and i cannot see a suspicious script..

    Can anyone assist please ?
