    Hi,

    Does anyone know where FromMail.pl lives, I know it looks to be in cgi-sys, but how do I get to it to edit the file using SSH?

    In a SSH session do, locate FormMail.pl

    It should come back with /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/FormMail.pl

    Keep in mind that any changes made to a cpanel controlled file could get overwritten when cpanel next updates.

    No, the copy in their directory should be fine.

    You might want to check to be sure, but I don't think that version is secure from spammers. They should at least rename the file to something else besides formmail.
