    I have someone using a script to spam yahoo accounts, I've had to disable user nobody to stop the outgoing spam however that's not a solution. I've no idea how I can track them down I've quickly looked through accounts for suspicious files but I didn't really see anything that said I don't really know what to look for in the first place.

    anyone know how I can find the user who's doing this?
