Subject [users@httpd] .cinik
Date Mon, 16 Dec 2002 04:33:24 GMT
Hello all.

Does anyone have any idea where .cinik comes from or what it is supposed 
to be doing.  I run an httpd on my linux system (Redhat 7.3, apache 
1.3.23) at home, purely as a training exercise.  I sometimes notice 
unusual network activity while connected (dialup ppp), and on a couple 
of occasions recently, the culprit has been .cinik, owned and run by 
apache.apache.  What's curious about .cinik is that it turns up in the 
strangest places: /tmp/.font-unix/.cinik/.cinik, 
/var/cache/httpd/.cinik, /var/lib/dav/.cinik.  Does anyone know where 
this thing comes from, or what it is doing?
