    We have some weird log files in /tmp, they are like this:

    dos-198.53.85.4

    and about 10 others with different ip's,

    inside the files is normally a single line like:

    11046

    dos files are owned by nobody

    Any Ideas?

    You likely have mod_evasive installed. The dos-IP-addy files are IP's that its temporarily blocking, afaik.
