Sorry for not answering earlier, was struggling with this bugzilla
interface and my message didn't go through.

I see the exact same issue, somebody accessing roundcube's html2text
with POST's and files are being uploaded (to /dev/shm in this
particular case). And I also have no idea how they start their programs
(a process httpd run by www-data that we caught quickly with tiger
since on Debian we call it apache2).
