I thinkTenacius hit the nail on the head

Moreover, one of the first thing I usually do when I noticed that one server 
have been hacked is look at /etc/passwd and search if there're any strange 
user with UID and GID = 0. If so, you're really fucked cause they will 
probably go back to your server and I suppose that with not too good thoughs. 
And that could also mean that a rootkit is running, and most of commands 
won't be realiable anymore either output.

Just my 2 cents
