    Go on, have a guess
    There's one inbuilt under certain circumstances into WHM which runs whenever upcp does in WHM > Background Process Killer. However, killing them off isn't such a great idea anyway as you'll remove the main evidence you need to track down how they were installed in the first place. Much better to secure your server and prevent them getting on in the first place and to constantly check your server(s) for their presence.
