    Good Day!

    I think we have a serious problem. One of our old
    server running FreeBSD 4.9 have been compromised and
    is now connected to an ircd server.. ESTABLISHED

    However, we still haven't brought the server down in
    an attempt to track the intruder down. Right now we
    are clueless as to what we need to do..
    Most of our servers are running legacy operating
    systems(old versions mostly freebsd) Also, that
    particular server is running - ProFTPD Version 1.2.4
    which someone have suggested to have a known

    I really need all the help I can get as the
    administration of those servers where just transferred
    to us by former admins. The server is used for ftp.
