Investigating and identifying infected sites sending a high volume of requests to other IP addresses or servers:

In your SSH, as root, run:

Code: Select all

lsof -i -n | grep php
Based on this output, you can trackdown the infected website:

Here we see that PHP running by the user "redcella" is making outgoing http/https connections to outside.

Now open Apache status, to find what site is under that account:

Click on "WEB"

Ctrl+F "redcella"
