    Go on, have a guess
    Was this a root compromise? If so, did you do an OS restore and then restore backups, or did you simply attempt to "clean" the compromise. If the latter, it's virtually impossible to trust the server anymore. If you restored from backup, sounds like that process may have gone wrong somewhere.
