    Hi there,
    I followed the "perfect server debian wheezy" tutorial a long time ago, worked perfectly, except for 1 thing, the security of emails.
    I have a lot of spam from some websites (Wordpress & Drupal, not on Prestashop and not on every WP or Drupal). As far i came with my investigations, the hackers had find a way to create files with nasty code that send a lot of emails.
    My temporary solution is to shut off postfix, i wrote a bash script that cleans the queue, but it's not easy to use.

    So how can i solve the email problem ? I thought about revoke write permissions of all users created by ISPconfig, but i hope there's a better way to do this.

    For the record, I have Debian Wheezy, up to date and I installed roundcube using the howtoforge tutorial.
    If any question, let me know.

    Check your installed sites for suspicious code and also make sure, you don´t have "unknown" admin-users in the wordpress-databases.

    I think one can use spam filters to get protected from Spam emails.
