    Default How do you track a spammer that is sending using nobody

    I have a spammer on one of my servers but I cannot find the user that owns the account. They are using a script that runs as nobody and then sends out bulk email with no identity. Any ideas of how to track this down?

    I have scanned the logs over and over and nothing stands out or referencing a user on the server.

    Can you provide a little more information about mail server, web server, control panel etc?
