when I typed

    ps -aux 

i recived

    root      2158  0.3  0.1  43860  6028 ?        Sl   Jan18   0:36 Passenger spawn server       
    119       2037  0.0  0.6  59152 26208 ?        S    Jan18   0:08 /usr/sbin/tor

My question is what is this magic tor in my sbin and what is 119 user? I have only one proces from it and it name is tor..

  • You are entering the command wrong, it should not have the - character, should be just ps aux. – Lucio Jan 19 '13 at 1:07
  • @Lucio Well, you may be right, but unless a user x exists, this gracefully falls back to the correct ps aux. See the manpage of ps(1) which explains this topic completely. – gertvdijk Jan 20 '13 at 13:57

User id 119 can't be resolved to a name in your case. Did you remove it without stopping all processes owned by it?

Apparently you're running Tor on that server.

There's nothing much more to tell from the information you provided. Assuming you're the administrator you should remember installing Tor on it.
