If you don't recognise the letters 'UDP' then you shouldn't be running a server.

Someone is using your server to run a perl script which, most likely is (or is trying to) send out a UDP flood.

This is nothing to do with cPanel :)

This isn't an official cPanel support forum. This is a community based forum for cPanel users and administrators. Sometimes cPanel staff do post here for various reasons, but it is not to be relied upon for support from cPanel directly. For that, instead of saying cPanel support sucks, you should open a ticket with cPanel, or have your provider do so. Support from cPanel, when using the official support channels, does not suck, and is often extremely helpful and fast.

Your box is hacked. Hire a sysadmin. I personally recommend Steven from rack911.com.
