thanks,
the path is:
/home/vmail/.cache/crond

and the output from pstree:
init-+-/usr/sbin/amavi---2*[/usr/sbin/amavi]
      |-/usr/sbin/postg
      |-/usr/sbin/spamd---2*[spamd child]
      |-acpid
      |-apache2---10*[apache2]
      |-atd
      |-clamd---{clamd}
      |-cron
      |-crond
...

and I looked into that /home/vmail/.cache/ directory.
This is for sure a trojan ..

Now what do I do?
is it enough to just remove it?
It seems to be rather old (shame on me) ..
Since 2012 (the date shown in the files in /home/vmail/.cache) I added 
tons of updates..
