Project Description

I just went into my server via FTP and found unrecognized folders named "exploit" containing a file named "target".

This folder and file is in every folder from my website. The user owner is "root" and chmod 711.

I have a dedicated server using red hat 5 Linux and I have root access.

I need help telling me ehat is it?
How can I delete it from my server?
See if anything else has been installed?
And see how did it get there?
