Who creates /tmp/.X11-unix directory? - FreeBSD

Who creates the /tmp/.X11-unix directory, and why? I'm not running x-anything on my system, but there's a directory out there that was touched a few days ago. -- Anthony...

    And probably coincides with your last reboot.

    $sockstat -u | grep X11

    might tell you what's up. Screensaver, perhaps?

    Hmm ... yes, it looks like it does.

    Shows nothing at the moment.

    I don't have the screensaver enabled in rc.conf. I do run vidfont and
    vidcontrol shortly after startup to switch the console to 80x50 mode.

    I just get nervous about mysterious things appearing on the server.

    That looks exactly like the remnants that you see, when a Plesk control panel was exploited.
    Check your crontab entries for * * * * * perl /tmp/.X11-unix >/dev/null 2>&1.

    If you got that, then your box is exploited! Check all cgi-bin directories,too. Clean them out!

    That is no guarantee there is nothing else lurking there, also plesk stores passwords in clear text, so everybody will have to change their passwords.

    If you are not using plesk and this is unrelated, carry on as normal!

    And for those of you who have not guessed it yet. Plesk s. And their brilliant idea of encrypting their code is useless. it just makes us admins life harder, if one of our dear clients demands Plesk. Puketastic!

    I should also say, apparently Plesk had a SQL injection vulnerability. LOL

    I rest my case.

    Take care all.
