Yeah its an odd one alright, never seen it before. Checked to make sure it
was not rooted and all seems fine. Just incase I am moving his stuff now.
Upon further investigation, it appeared to be some type of process related
to mgetty, and a terminal server his hosting provider had. I forced a reboot
and am going through the process of shutting down each process he does not
need and seeing what the terminal service his HP uses to find out if there
is any know issues, but its quite odd.
Apart from logrotate and the normal stuff, there is noting in cron.
Will let you know what I find, cheers for the help
