Thanks alot for the info.

I will run that.. I looked at my mail log and only two emails were sent out, and both got bounced, unless the mail log got cleaned. Luckily this is just some home server for fun, so nothing important, but would like to figure out what happened.

The example i gave is bad. It is more like this

I didn't want to post the email my server was trying to send out
because it includes the /etc/passwd file so I posted examples i found
on the net. Apprently root tried to send out couple of emails to
unknown users of yahoo and other email address as well. The email was
bounced and that is how i found out. :( I am not in the competition.

Are you running RootKit Hunter? If not, you should. You stand a good chance of knowing promptly when someone has established a toehold on your system.
