    I have find a folder called " trimit" and a file " trimit.tgz" under the admin user /home/admin/trimit/. Inside that folder contains these files ebay.php, ini.inc, list.txt and test.txt. I have deleted this folder, its content and the file trimit.tgz.

    Now it has created a directory called trimit under the /var/tmp/. This
    directory contains files that auto generate emails and send it to a list of
    receptionists. I don't know for sure how these files got there.

    It will be very help fully, if you have any information how to prevent this
    in the future as it happened so often.
