    Security hole????

    Hello friends,
    When I checked my server logs today I found that someone scanned my ports.Besides that I found a stranage line n my log,

    server portsentry[1354]: adminalert: Psionic PortSentry 1.1 is starting.
    May 14 00:12:31 server portsentry[1355]: adminalert: ERROR: No UDP ports supplied in config file. Aborting
    May 14 00:12:31 server portsentry[1355]: adminalert: ERROR: could not go into PortSentry mode. Shutting down.
    May 14 00:12:31 server portsentry[1355]: securityalert: Psionic PortSentry is shutting down
    May 14 00:12:31 server portsentry[1355]: adminalert: Psionic PortSentry is shutting down
    May 14 00:12:31 server portsentry: Starting portsentry -udp: succeeded
    May 14 00:12:31 server kernel: application bug: securetmp(1365) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().


    See the last line.I am not very sure but I think my /tmp is not secure.
    Can anybody tell me what is that?What should i do?

    No, looks like a bug in a cPanel script.
