We had one too. It was an NT 4.0 SP 6. There was a rogue service fxsvc.exe
running and eating up the cpu time. Google on fxsvs shows a few references
to a backdoor, but so far only showing up in Europe.  Some smaller
Anti-virus companies are listing it in their definitions as of the 12th, but
I can't find any more information about the compromise.

Good recommendation on 'amap'.  You may also want to try this Nmap flag
as well, which may help determine the protocol being spoken by/to that
port.  It's called the "Protocol Scan":

(with root privileges)

# nmap -sO <host IP>
