    I have this over and over.

    It's not a shared server so I guess it's from a script some how.

    I also found this one:

    [Tue Oct 11 22:59:53 2005] [error] System: Connection reset by peer (errno: 104)

    Strange stuff.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    Go on, have a guess
    So, are you seeing those in the apache error_log? If so, then most commonly from what I've seen, script exploits run whoami to establish the user credentials that they've gained access with after using an vulnerability in a script.
