 sshd hacked?
Author: fischb22

recently i got a call from the datacenter where my server is located

aparently i am spamming the hell out of everyone, i've since then closed the box down via firewall rules, for investigation

i have found that whenever i log in via SSH an email is created with the username and password of what i logged in with.

i think i have found some discrepancies with sshd

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 679755 Jan 9 2008 sshd
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 168488 Jan 9 2008 sshd0

this seems odd to me, all the other files in this directory are dated may 2006

i deleted the source tree, and am doing a csvup right now, going to reinstall sshd when that is done.

was not sure if anyone else found this, or has come accross it.

excpert from /var/log/maillog:
