Since you know the machine was hacked, you can't trust *anything* on the
machine.  If possible, you should rebuild it.  If a jail was hacked,
replacing that jail may be enough.  You might be able to clean up the
hack by reverse-engineering it, but you'll never be able to be sure you
got everything.
