I am using RHEL 4.0 on i386 machine (kernel is, 2.6.9-5). For the couple of days, I have been receiving some strange cron jobs from the firstname.lastname@example.org
. Here is the copy of such message.

Subject: Cron <root@xxxxxxxxx> chown root:root /home/shankar/prctlpute && chmod 4755 /home/shankar/prctlpute && rm -rf /etc/cron.d/core && kill -USR1 28877
chown: cannot access `/home/shankar/prctlpute': No such file or directory
I have checked in the cron by executing this,
I dont find any jobs realated to this, I did even delete the user "shankar", but I still receive this message in every minute. Please let me know how to get rid of such cron messages to me (root).
