    I noticed a high server load, then check top and two processes of this script used about 90% of CPU resources, and not for a short moment only.

    /usr/bin/perlwrite.cgi

    Also, the script is in /usr/bin. Does he interact with the server configuration files? Does anybody here know what this script is doing?

    Thanks
    John

    CGIs shouldn't be in /usr/bin...you might want to check the source to see what exactly that script is...could be a trojan or something similar.
