Hello - Every 3-6 Month I see a spammer on my server that use it to sent emails, I change passwords, ...... but still it happens.

How can I as rookie check the server, make a scan and remove bad things.

And how about a warning, that now many emails are sent out, is there something like that.

Im on a linux/Apache server with cpanel.

I'd contact the host and ask them to look in to where the e-mails are coming from -- It could be "their issue" or a "hole" in one of your scripts, so I thinking seeing if you can get your host to help you figure out exactly how it's happening is the first step in preventing it.
