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.

[Corion]: Hurr. Yesterday I played around with ffmpeg as a new toy and found its "scene" filter great - it detects scene changes. Now I could write a module that splits a given video on its cuts into different scenes. Except I have no use case for that :)
[Corion]: (and also, writing yet another FFmpeg module just to wrap system() and grep through its output isn't all that great ...)
