in reply to Who modifies $ENV{PATH}?

perlsec provides information about modifying %ENV (including $ENV{PATH}). As already mentioned by jethro, it's standard practice for cron.

I wouldn't assume something bad or malicious has occurred. Consulting System Administrators is probably your best bet in the first instance.
