    Yesterday we noticed that we had some strange running processes seen in top. The processes seemed to be apache processes, but the command that was being run was "4". Just the number 4. I checked on the server and found no instances of any executable files with that name. We upgraded apache on that server and it seemed to fix it. Now this morning I am noticing some processes that are of command "3". That is the process name is the number 3. I checked on it, and it seems to be exim processes (atleast something running on port 25). Has anyone experienced this? How do you fix it? Is it something to be concerned about?
