Straight from the IT Crowd: "have you turned the thing off and on again?" :)

If so, can you check using strace (apt-get install strace, if it's not
there) and run `strace <command>' for those commands that are
segfaulting?  I'm quite surprised that even `rm' segfaulted: it could
be (I repeat, could be) a system compromise, or barring that, your
libc6 may need to be reinstalled.
