Just some info: A good hack or rootkit will clean the clean logs.

1. Don't reboot
2. check .bash_history if you are using bash.
3. run lsof <--- this is missed a lot by rootkits
4. copy known good ps, ls, netstat, etc ... commands and use those.
5. check for "..." directories etc..
6. etc... More if you really want to dig deep into this
