    Hello !
    I need help with stopping wget option for 1 user.
    I want to stop it because there is a wget cron job added by hacker.

    Could you please help me ?
    My server is Debian 10, Apache and Ispconfig 3

    Just delete the cron job and fix whatever vulnerability the hacker exploited to create it.

    To answer your question, either set custom permissions for that client which does not allow cron jobs or create a client template which does that and assign that template to the client. But this is probably the wrong solution, as if you don't fix the vulnerability used, they will just switch tactics to doing something else.

    How to delete it ?
    When I type crontab -e on my console, there is no Cronjob added, but on my system logs I’m seeing it.

    man crontab
    To edit a users crontab, log in as root and use command
    crontab -u username -e
