Did you have any system snoopers around that you installed (tripwire
and things of that ilk) that you can refer to for time information?
If you can narrow down the time that the files were updated, you
might have found out when the intrusion actually occurred and then,
by grepping that information from "last", you can find out who he
logged in as (assuming he logged in normally the first time). If I
can be of any help, feel free to shoot me an e-mail. -- Jonathan
