I'm using 12.10, and wondering if my problem with Cpanel is caused by malware on my computer. When I go to the File Manager in any new version of Cpanel, demos, etc, I get this to the left of the files:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><!DOCTYPE acunetix [ <!ENTITY acunetixent SYSTEM "http:
" onmouseover=prompt(920251) bad="
1 and sleep(5.564)
1" and sleep(5.564)="
1"; waitfor delay '0:0:5.564' --
1; waitfor delay '0:0:5.564' --

To the right, I get 8 to over 20 lines like this line with different letters at the beginning ab, bb, etc:

sc 4KB Oct 3, 2012 httpd/unix-directory

I used Ubuntu with Cpanel a few years ago and had no problems, so I'm wondering what the cause of this is. A rep at one of the webhosts said it might be something generated by my computer, but he didn't know for sure. I'm not a tech person, so I don't know either.

If it is some kind of malware, how would I get rid of it?

Thanks in advance for any help. This is frustrating because most weshost use Cpanel and the "sc 4KB ...." part of this problem obscures the files in the Cpanel and renders it unusable for me.
