SUMMARY:Possible Virus????

I recieved several replies to this and have seen others like it since mine.
We discovered a bad cron job that was supossed to remove cores and it was
removing files at random or maybe not so random but by I-nodes. Nobody with
root access will attest to editing the cron entry which worked fine for a long
time before going bad (It seems somebody deleted the -name option from the
find). We haven't disregarded the possibility of a hacker but more than likely
it was one of our own people who are afraid to fess up.

Thanks to all who repied
