hi walter,

as you might know, updating packages on a hacked server isn't really a
solution. you have to install it completely new because you'll never
know what binarys/rpms have been replaced and maybe there's a rootkit

maybe you can transfer the running service onto another server.
something like www or ftp should not be a big problem to transfer and
bring up a new server on a secure (not hacked) server. best thing is to
shut this machine off as fast as you can. think about... it could be
possible the attacker is running a sniffer or other programs to prepare new
hack attacks.
