    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.

    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.
