1. I think there is a Sun web page where you can get MD5 signatures
   for the files on your system. Alternately, check them against an
   installation CD.

2. Nmap scan the system from another system and see what ports are open. 
   Then run a clean copy of lsof on the suspect system and see what 
   processes are listening. My guess is you'll find a backdoor ssh server.

Here are CERT's recommendations but a lot of them depend upon having
uncompromised system tools:
