From the ps output it appears that the hack originated from the web server or 
a CGI-BIN script it ran.

As they ran modprobe I guess they got root.  :(

The recommended method is to backup configuration files and data and reinstall 
the machine from scratch.

Fighting off a hacker who is already in your machine as root is difficult.  
Doing it properly is more difficult than preventing them cracking your 
machine in the first place.

Best to reinstall.
