Hey guys,

I hope this is the right section to post this.
Im having some weird spam issue on a Plesk 9.5 w/ ASL 3.0.18,

This spam issue happens only once per week, mostly every sunday and I cant seem to find the source, where this is being sent from. Heres the qmail log report I got based on the time the RBL list shown as last blacklisted,

Code:
Feb  5 16:41:46 as8 /var/qmail/bin/relaylock[476038]: /var/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from 127.0.0.1:53108 (localhost)

I have followed http://kb.parallels.com/766 and http://kb.parallels.com/en/1711 without luck, there a no important mails on the qmail queue (just 15) smtp_auth doesnt show any mailbox that tried to login at the same time and the sendmail wrapper didnt caught anything related to any of the two addresses shown on the logs.

I was wondering if you guys can help me reproduce from where this is coming from or if ASL has any feature that would help tracking the spammer.

Thanks in advance!

And if it is, a couple of things you can do:

1) read the spam article on the wiki for tools you can use to help you track down errant scripts and abusive users:

2) Install our version of PHP, which will add additional headers to the email message so you can see what the scripts name is from the email message

Thanks for the advice guys.

The thing is Im not getting any bounced message, I only have that information from the logs, there is no email on the queue that I could investigate for headers or something like that and I believe qmhandle requires at least to have a email so not sure if it will be helpful.

I tried looking at the xferlog for recently uploaded cgi scripts during all the day the IP got blacklisted and couldnt find anything relevant.
