clamscan goes overboard
I'm an ispconfig user and something alarming happened to my server today. Wondering whether anyone recognises this and/or knows what to do about it.
A customer sent out something they refer to as a "broadcast" which is a single emailmessage bcc'ed to ±50 recipients. At a certain moment (which lasted over an hour) the processlist was filled with about 60 clamscan processes taking up all cpu-power and causing a load >70 (!)
Doesn anyone know how to stop ispconfig/clamscan/procmail from starting that many processes ?
