Gurus, please help me. (URGENT) Can't Post

hello. A friend of mine's website was hacked recently (december) and we have been digging around cleaning out bits of garbage from here and there, when we came across the following file (that was not put there by my friend):

screamer.source.pl



I was hoping someone here (with your vast wealth of PERL experience and knowledge) could help us figure out what this file is, and what it might be doing there.



I would be eternally grateful for any help..



-OB.

Make a copy and name it screamer.txt and attach it to a post. But please note, your problem is urgent to you, not anyone else. Someone will help you when they have the time. I can take a look at the attached file later today if nobody else does.

It probably is a backdoor or one of those bots which crawls the web fetching emails thus using your friend's server for spam purposes.

You could be right, but Obtusitivity hasn't revisited this forum since the day he posted his urgent plea for help.
