    did a &trace& on it in whm and get hundreds of lines like this

    read(5, &&, 4096) = 0
    write(6, &\7&, 1) = 1
    read(5, &&, 4096) = 0
    write(6, &\7&, 1) = 1
    read(5, &&, 4096) = 0
    write(6, &\7&, 1) = 1
    read(5, &&, 4096) = 0
    write(6, &\7&, 1) = 1
    read(5, &&, 4096) = 0
    write(6, &\7&, 1) = 1
    read(5, &&, 4096) = 0
    brk(0x87f7000) = 0x87f7000

    My search turned up no such script by that name, but did show it (demployer) is not used as an English word we would recognize.
