comment VP is demanding admin access to PC to install apps - What is a good containment strategy?
OK answer, but (-) remove the "slip a false positive and harass the user" advice, that's just obnoxious "sysadmin from hell" behavior; and (+) add something about clearly defining some policies about what's truly not allowed. For example, no routes or tunnels no non-firewalled network.

comment tar specific number of file
Use "find <directory> -type f" so that the pathnames passed into tar don't include directories. Alternative: for small split sizes, you could could use xargs insteads of split and avoid all the temp files.

Looking into your (virtual) server logs might tell you what exploit was used, especially if you have a timestamp on all those file creations.
