    Hello everyone,
    My wordpress site is sending spams. I've been logging which script is sending emails and I keep deleting the script. But, after a day or two another file is being created. I need to find the script or file which is creating those files.

    Is there any monitoring command or tool which I can setup to watch my wordpress directory to see which file is creating those scripts?

    Your help is much appreciated.

    sounds like your wordpress site has been compromised.. without knowing the extent and level of compromise best to wipe and reload the operating system, reinstall the web stack (Centmin Mod) and restore your site from a recent clean backup.

    probably outdated or compromised wp plugins at fault

    probably need to hire someone like Sucuri if you need a clean up
