[Techtalk] undeletable files

DDOS program installed and activating on boot.
Modified system files dropped my firewall.
First tip off was SSH stopped working.
Now, after the server is mostly recovered,
I have two files that I cannot delete or replace
as root with rm -f. /usr/sbin/sshd and
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit. It merely tells me that I
don't have permission and can't unlink the file.
How do I delete a file that I can't delete??
A scientist deduces a relationship that fits the facts and
calls it a theory; an idealist suggests a relationship among
facts and calls it a vision; an ideologue demands that you accept
his conjectures without regard to the facts and calls them
revealed truth. A theory is sustained by experiment, an ideal
by philosophy, and an ideology by a secret police.
