Now here the process 12000/stealth is attacking many ips on port 80.

We identified that "portraitplace" user is the main culprit here. The process 12000 is of this user. Also the whm processes was showing the stealth process against user "portraitplace"

Suspend portraitplace user and create a ticket for it.
Also check the cron of this user, it will show you a process execution of every minute.
