100% cpu usage by apache user


hello,

my server keeps getting clogged and i have no idea what i can do about it.

top says that the apache user is using 100% cpu with the "std" command.

ps -eo pcpu,pid,user,args | sort -r -k1 | head -10

Code:
%CPU PID USER COMMAND
99.4 28504 apache ./std 68.146.134.210 80
what could this be? looks like a hack to me, since the ip address is not ours. how can i resolve this in an easy way?

thanks

What have you done to verify that the suggested solutions are not appropriate to your situation?

i don't think it's Apache itself, but the user "apache" is being malused.

do you know what this means?
Code:
%CPU   PID    USER     COMMAND
99.4   28504  apache   ./std 68.146.134.210 80

I had the same problem today

I'm running Gentoo on my server and someone tried this too
I'm still looking for a solution, but I think it will go in the way to format and reainstall everything

facts are:

I lost my internet conenction and found out that the problem was on my server
First this I did was checking htop for any weard stuff, and I found the same thing you did:
(I did want to past an image but the forum won't allow me :P)
there was also an ssh with pid 4897 which was running on port 443, and what stopped apache from restarting

Code:
#
# ps aux | grep 4897
#
root      4897  0.0  0.0   4416   928 ?        Ss   Nov07   0:00 /usr/sbin/sshd
#
root     22940  0.0  0.0   1768   488 pts/1    R+   20:18   0:00 grep --colour=auto 4897
Code:
#
# /etc/init.d/apache2 start
#
 * Starting apache2 ...
#
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443
#

#
