There has been a lot of traffic on a machine lately.
Someone noticed a .mech/.stealth directory in /var/tmp/...
which looks kind of like a virus.  It does suspicious
things.  There is a file called cyc.pid which contains
a process id.  When I did a ps on the ID I found only
"ps" was running.  However, in that same directory I noticed
an executable called "ps".  The ps on ps showed it had been
running for the last 4 or 5 days, and a regular linux ps runs
no more than a few seconds.  There is also an executable there
called "pico" and several server files all pointing to undernet.org.

Has anyone else run into this?  Is it a virus?  Is like an
IRC bot.  What can be done?
