• weird file created every 15 mins

    hey,

    i have this file created every 15 minutes, looks like this:

    index.html?q=Mjk0NDg1MzoyMTA1OTE4MTc6ZDllM2M0NDUzMzliMDVhNTcxN cont'd mJlZTA1MGY3MzI2YjIxZGI2N2Y5ZDIxNzhmNGQwNTU5ZjEwZjc4ZDQ4ZWJmMA.4929

    looking into the file it is either:
    'Ok'
    or more recently,
    'The record's key is wrong!'

    Any ideas? I am using Pi/Linux and most current mystic software. it seems strange that it is an html file that is created.

    thanks.

    It alsmost looks like this is being created from a dynamic DNS script which may be running wget or curl.

    I have something similar running but I just send the output to STDOUT and then send everying to NULL:

    wget -O - https://(dynamic dns stuff) > /dev/null

    thanks jay. i researched more and think it might have something to do with
    the vnc server.i looked in /var/log/ and found the line above in the vncserver-x11.log - probably harmless but with over 3600 files created it
    would eventually get out of hand .
