    All of this subdomain was created on same day . and they were redirecting to

    above folder is outside of public_html and contains lots of php script including fake logins and shell script. I found this issue on few websites on both servers.

    I was wondering how to avoide this? it dose not seems to be done by using cpanel password of websites. all of them has difficult password.
    is this possible to creaate subdomain without login to cpanel? how to track this problem and avoide it. any suggestion?1

    Were you able to review /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log to see if any unknown IP addresses accessed cPanel to create those subdomains?

    Thank you.
