[icecast] unwanted oper login

Hi all,

I help administer a Linux(RH6.1) box running icecast 1.3.5.  
I'm going to go ahead and upgrade to 1.3.10 shortly.  Recently a user from
a strange(to us) dial-in account logged in as operator and issued a shutdown
command.  I changed the passwords to see if someone in our group had let it 
out, but the same thing happened two days latter.

I'm trying to figure out how this was done, so I can decide whether we should
consider the whole system compromised, or if perhaps there is another machine
on the LAN that's been compromised and used to sniff us out.
