I'm a VPS account owner and i'm getting emails all the time saying i'm out of memory.
the hosting company don't seem to want to solve the problem, instead they want to try sell me another service without fixing the current problem. ( moving emails to a new service and turning off all mail fuctions )
They are saying a spamming script was installed via wordpress vulnerability. But don't know where or when or what it is. But I don't expect them to know that.
I've removed about 90% of the websites from the server and not there is only 3-4 websites running wordpress ( i'll be removing another one soon )
I've deleted over 20 wordpress installs.
But still the server is running our or memory.
The host says it's a script sending emails. My ip address has been placed on some black lists.
I've used a little linux in the past but very basic.
Does anyone know:
1: Can i find the location of the files sending these spam mails 2: Can i limit the number of emails sent on the server per user ? There is myself and 2 others that would only use the emails and i know they are not spamming.. they only send 2-3 emails per day.
Is there any other suggestions on what I could do ? Thanks
