    Getting this as the subject line in emails from the server...one per minute....

    Cron <root@host> chown root:root /dev/shm/prctl && chmod 4755 /dev/shm/prctl && rm -rf /etc/cron.d/core && kill -USR1 17694


    This didnt start until AFTER a security breach where shell was initiated by a hacker...

    The actual email message reads....

    chown: cannot access `/dev/shm/prctl': No such file or directory


    Any idea how to get rid of this message every minute?

    Also, what is the correct way to set the mail system up in WHM so I dont get all the junk mail in my inbox? Its getting sent to me becasue its 'undeliverable'
