    The apache status is logging these from some remote IP I do not know in Russia.
    GET /cgi-bin/ezshopper3/loadpage.cgi HTTP/1.0
    GET /cgi-bin/faqmanager.cgi HTTP/1.0
    GET /cgi-bin/environ.cgi HTTP/1.0
    GET /cgi-bin/ezshopper/search.cgi HTTP/1.0
    GET /cgi-bin/ezshopper/loadpage.cgi HTTP/1.0
    GET /cgi-bin/ezshopper2/loadpage.cgi HTTP/1.0
    GET /cgi-bin/enter.cgi HTTP/1.0

    Seems they are probing the system. I just run a basic WordPress site. Can I disable cgi-bin?

    Any insights into why they would go at these files?

    A google search for this:
    /cgi-bin/ezshopper3/loadpage.cgi

    Tells me it's an old vulnerability:
    /http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/2109/exploit

    Yes sure.

    You can modify the account via WHM to disable CGI Privilege, or disable CGI Access for the Package the account is using here:
    WHM » Packages » Edit a Package
