    Hi all!
    My server is running some mystic process called [httpd]. Process name is in square brackets. What do they mean? I can easily kill it. Sometimes there are process called [chatsvr]. It would not be a problem, but they are taking all CPU power and server really becomes slow. Any ideas what it is and why it happens? I think it should be some CGI, because owner is "nobody".

    I searched through HDD and did not find such file. :-( Looks like someone uploaded script, run it and then deleted.. :(

    Would appriciate any ideas. Thanks!
