Hi all,

Someone on our server is sending spam mails, he does not know about it.
Most spam are sent to aol.com,gmail.com and cs.com

I'm getting loads of these Mail delivery failed mails:
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:


The e-mails come from the system/user account e-mail of the domain (username@domain.com).
I think it sent more then 30.000 mails in 2 days.
Also received a complaint from aol.

How can I trace this? What can I do to fix it?
Is it a some crappy written php script?

He said he updated joomla, wiki and smf forum.

What can I do now?

Thanks in advance!

With kind regards,

DhoTjai

You may not be able to trace it, but it's some program run by the username shown as sending the email. Yes, a crappy written php script or cgi script.
He said he updated joomla, wiki and smf forum.

If what he's done hasn't solved the problem, he's go to do more. Or you can shut off his account. Your probably should have done that some time ago.

Hopefully you have a Terms of Service that allows you to do that.
