    Hello!

    Yesterday I found the following log entries:

    Code:
    Jun  6 13:27:30 web pure-ftpd: ([email protected]*.*.*.*) [INFO] New connection from *.*.*.*
    Jun  6 13:27:32 web pure-ftpd: ([email protected]*.*.*.*) [INFO] [clientname]superuser is now logged in
    Jun  6 13:29:10 web pure-ftpd: ([email protected]*.*.*.*) [INFO] New connection from *.*.*.*
    Jun  6 13:29:11 web pure-ftpd: ([email protected]*.*.*.*) [INFO] [clientname]superuser is now logged in
    Jun  6 13:29:38 web pure-ftpd: ([clientname][email protected]*.*.*.*) [INFO] Logout.
    ("[clientname]" is the username of the ISPConfig user)

    I wonder where this account comes from and where I can delete it or change the password? In ISPconfig there is only one FTP account for that user, namely '[clientname]ftp'.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance and best regards,
    -René

    The user must be eithernin the list of ftp or ssh users. btw. "superuser" is just a name, it does not mean that this user is a superuser nor that he has any additional permisions.

    Hi Till,

    thank you, I know it's just a name, but it's none that I've set up. So I thought maybe it's a default (autmatically generated) account. This username appears neither in Shell nor in FTP users.

    There are no default FTP or shell users in ispconfig. Check the database tables "shell_user" and "ftp_user" in the ispconfig mysql database with phpmyadmin if you find a user with that name there.
