/tmp getting full by pThumb files!!!


Nov 3, 2004

I have a strange problem with temporary files that - i suppose - an php image upload/thumb generator script is generating in my server.

I'm talking about 10-20mb per 30 minutes and /tmp is getting full almost every day by these files that start with pThumb followed by an English alphabet letter [ a - z ] either small or capital, and then some random letters/numbers.

Any ideas how I can find the user or script causing this?

I've tried google with many alternative searches, tried to open the files with a normal image extension ( ie .jpg ) but only some showed preview which was of course not "watchable"!

I've also searched the hole /home folder with "find" for pThumb or pthumb and only virtfs returned results...

Any help would be reeeeally appreciated!
