    i'm noticing some cron errors sent to (admin/root email) and am wondering what this is "/var/tmp/.../t"
    error message in the email says:
    "Subject: Cron <nobody@cpanel1> /var/tmp/.../t"
    body: bind: Address already in use
    Edit: cron email now reports: /bin/sh: /var/tmp/.../t: Permission denied End edit

    Can someone a) tell me what this is b) tell me what i need to do to fix it?
    Code:
    root@cpanel1 [/var/tmp/...]# ls -l
    total 1468
    drwxr-xr-x    2 nobody   nobody       4096 Jan 21 00:47 ./
    drwxrwxrwt    4 root     root         4096 Jan 21 03:16 ../
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 nobody   nobody      15094 Jan  5 02:32 connect*
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 nobody   nobody      84667 Jan 20 21:28 nc*
    -rwx------    1 nobody   nobody    1380576 Jan  5 02:38 t*

    Go on, have a guess
    Looks like a rootkit to me - could be a failed or successful hacking attempt.

    Install chkrootkit to see if you've been hacked:
