Hi all,

At 2:00 am today, I turned my laptop on and suddenly found a strange process:

$ ps xauw | grep find
... find -sx ./bin -type f 
     ( -perm -u+x -or -perm -g+x -or -perm -o+x )
       ( -perm -u+s -or -perm -g+s ) -exec ls -liTd {} +

What is the purpose of this process? If that is a system check then where is the log file?

Thank you for your replies,


Anh Ky Huynh
