    Last night I got my first email from "Anacron" telling me it executed my daily crons.

    I did not enable this service, how did it appear?


    Cron sent at 6am July 19th:
    From: Cron Daemon
    Subject: Cron <root@myserver> run-parts /etc/cron.daily‏


    Cron sent at 2am July 20th:
    From: Anacron
    Subject: Anacron job 'cron.daily'‏


    The body of both messages is exactly the same.

    Go on, have a guess
    I'd guess that an OS update to the anacron package restarted it.

    To stop it on Linux:

    service anacron stop
    chkconfig anacron off
