    I've been getting a daily email since upgrading to a Vded server. The email looks like this:

    From: Cron Daemon <root@ip-97-74-81-213.ip.secureserver.net>
    Date: Thu, Jun 24, 2010 at 6:28 AM
    Subject: Cron <root@ip-97-74-81-213> run-parts /etc/cron.daily
    To: root@ip-97-74-81-213.ip.secureserver.net

    /etc/cron.daily/dnsquery:

    ./popauth: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    popauth: no process killed
    popauth: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


    After doing some research it seems like the /etc/cron.daily/dnsquery: is a potential hack. I need to know how to stop this cron job (a) because I don't want to receive this email daily and (b) to make sure we're not hacked. Any insight?

    1. You could delete the file /etc/cron.daily/dnsquery
    2. If the script is fine and you want to get it to work, install libdb :)
