Question "stealth" system process slamming cpu


Hi,

Running Redhat 9

I'm trying to search for some help on this issue through Google and other post on this site, however I'm pressed for time due to the fact that it is compromising our company....

When I run top, I see a proccess, stealth, which is sucking up most of the servers cpu.

Stealth is using User: #500

What is stealth?
Is it ok to kill it?

Thanks,

360

use top's command (i believe it's 'c') to show where the program is located, suspend it, then go to that directory and check for doc's, but suspend it, then kill it if it won't let you suspend.
