One of my Wordpress installs (cPanel VPS) had a cron job (backup to Dropbox script) that was interrupted. Ever since the interruption I receive hourly emails from root@ cPanel/WHM:
-Excessive resource usage
-Suspicious process running under user […]
The suspicious process emails include the following:
Network connections by the process (if any):
tcp: 18.104.22.168:52480 -> 22.214.171.124:443
That last IP address is a Dropbox IP. The thing is I have checked for any running jobs, have deactived and deleted the plugins responsible and have installed Cron checking plugins and no cron scripts are currently in place that have anything to do with the Dropbox backup. I have also checked in cPanel and no cron jobs are listed.
And yet I still receive the emails. Every hour. They are driving me crazy! But I don't just want to set up a rule in the email to delete them as I figure something must be going on to make cPanel/WHM send me these emails.
Does anyone have any suggestions, I'm desperate!
