Today I saw this on my FC3:
[root at hst-1-98 ~]# netstat -ap --tcp
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 92672 hst-1-98.siriusbg.com:57358 server266.com:smtp ESTABLISHED 2997/jAFKvTwN007961
[root at hst-1-98 ~]# ps -u root | grep 2997
2997 ? 00:00:01 sendmail
Is that something that is sending mail without my knowledge?
That what worries me is the program name, and that I have not started any mail program or sent mail today...
