True enough, but the real cause for concern (beyond potentially exploitable services, listening on *:????, now being exposed to the outside world) is the fact that it happened at all. Why? Did someone break in and do it? If so, what else did they do?
Matt then went on (in a later message) to give several very useful suggestions for investigation.
Thanks a lot to everyone who has responded (or will respond)!
