    Hi Guys,

    I am having a terrible problem with spam, My Service said that the spammer was outside the server, but he is using my server for spam, I can't see how he can do that, Can anyone give me some advice on how to find and stop a spammer from using the server for spamming even if they are not a client from within the server.

    Regards, Thomas

    Check for formmail.pl/cgi scripts on the server, pre version 1.94, they can be used for sending Spam by anyone.
    If you find one remove it, you can use cgi-sys or download a safe formmail here http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/
