Strange perl script

If a simple 'locate sploger' shows nothing(run `periodic weekly` which
will update your locate database assuming you're keeping things
relatively stock), then in all likelihood you've got an intruder. If
some of the other tips posted give no help, and you've got time on your
hands, try `grep -l sploger /` and you'll find all files with sploger
in it. If you've been broken into and they're being really tricky, it
won't work but odds are they aren't that bright if the process is still
in ps's output.
