Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I had the bright idea of clearing some space on the root partition. I thought I was fairly safe from what I have read by removing some of the locale files for Plesk and some of the backup.tar.gz and logs.tar.gz but I must have removed something by accident. I have looked back at the message and although I have removed the addresses and any IP's the location its trying to download the file from is on another server. I have looked through the message header and it is coming from the root account to the root account. I don't normally take care of this but the usual guy is away for a couple of weeks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you need any more information from me please let me know.

Thanks in advance

You're asking us to help you troubleshoot, you're not asking about general Unix knowledge (which is what this website is about). You should try to reword this question so it become more generic and (potentially) useful for others. –  rahmu Mar 26 '13 at 16:10
    
Try looking in your crontabs for context, comments, etc. If you don't know how to do this or where crontabs may be stored, try Google, then ask a new, specific question about that. –  depquid Mar 26 '13 at 18:14

You're downloading a png file and executing it with perl. That's never going to work. You're also not allowed to download the png file, so you're actually executing the resulting 403 error page with perl, which won't work either.

Is there anyway I can trace this back to find out which user is causing it? It only started occurring after I cleared some disk space so I have to assume its something I have done to cause it. Thanks Dennis –  chris chaney Mar 26 '13 at 11:37
    
Check the X-Cron-Env headers in the mail –  Dennis Kaarsemaker Mar 26 '13 at 11:40
    
I have checked the header information and it is the root account emailing the main server contact. looking back through the original message though the IP that it is trying to download the .png from isn't ours. Can you suggest anything else to check? Thanks again. –  chris chaney Mar 26 '13 at 11:57
