    it is likely you have been compromised by a script kiddie who has modified the account to have absolute root. you should find the user and terminate it.

    Go on, have a guess
    Yup. If you didn't create it, then as Sinewy said, you've most likely got a root exploit on your hands. If you don't know how to check for that, you should either contact your datacentre/NOC or hire a server admin to check it out for you. If you're very lucky, it's just an oversight, otherwise you're looking at an OS re-install and restoring your sites from backup.
