Weird process taking up 60% to 80% of my cpu
Today I have noticed a process named zztznnmhux that has been using 70%+ cpu for the past few hours and my bandwidth usage is around 300 MB’s per second. Yesterday there was another process the had a different name doing the same thing as zztznnmhux. The only thing I have running on my server only uses around 2% to 8% cpu with some split second spikes to 20% to 30% cpu. Thanks for any help. (The tag dosnt have much to do with this btw, just the closest I could find)
Edit: I received a email from digital ocean stating that they detected a outgoing ddos attack and that my applets network has been disabled, this is not true, I have not sent any ddos attacks. On the stats page my network usage does make it look like I am sending a ddos attack but I can say that I am not.
