Hello All,

Before few weeks I setup email and webserver based on ubuntu server.


Recently I noticed that cpu is fully used by http.pl, httpd.pl, https.pl process.

2473 www-data 20 0 36800 6948 1332 R 54 0.7 8:45.96 https.pl
2348 www-data 20 0 38332 7464 1332 R 52 0.7 8:55.28 http.pl
2475 www-data 20 0 36688 6884 1332 R 45 0.7 8:29.28 httpd.pl
2474 www-data 20 0 36952 6948 1332 R 35 0.7 8:37.41 httpd.pl

I restarted system and after 10 min situation is same and because of that web serving can't work properly.

Is my server hacked ?

I also try to kill process by sudo kill 2473 but nothing happen to this process ....

any suggestion how to identify and fix issue ?

https.pl is the module used for secure http connections, it's normal.
