    Hello,

    Recently I've noticed a spike in SPAM coming into our mailboxes. Checking the Mail statistics in WHM, one of our clients has a massive spike in outgoing mail coming from their domain.

    Is it possible that maybe a client downloaded a worm or something that somehow is sending E-mail to all the E-mail accounts on our server?

    Also is there a way to view all the outgoing messages from the server?

    Thank you !!!

    We did installed the php mail header patch. This gives you the ability to track down the location of the sending script if spam has been send by a vulnerable mail(form) script.

    You can find the patch here

    Hope that helps...
