You've been rooted and had a rootkit installed -- time to reinstall the system and keep it up to date security-wise this time. Oh, and it's bad netiquette to request answers via private e-mail, because then others who have this problem won't be able to see them.

I am getting the same error after installing oracle DB.
Is it possible to get it resolved without reinstalling the os?

[root@db4 root]# reboot

If you've been rooted, the only safe and assured way to restore your system is to reinstall it from scratch. Once the cracker has gotten in with root privileges it's very hard to know what all he or she has changed and to find any backdoors or other "surprises" left on the system.

If you have more questions about this, the security forum is the place to go, but please, get the box of the net if you haven't already! It is a danger to you and to others until you get it cleaned and reinstalled.

After spending quite a bit of time on it I just reinstalled RH9 and it seems to be OK now.
