    Is your tmp executable? The cancer file can be bad from what I have read. I would definately rm them.

    The cgi* is equally as bad. Iv seen this before. Its actually a .c script that they rename before they recompile. Really doesnt matter whether your /tmp is executable or not. All the modificiations being made by server admins to lock down /tmp is fruitless when there are way to get around this. It really offers very minimual protection.

    When is Cpanel going to give us a properly chrooted envir?
