It's usually a question of finding out which package installs it,
downloading a new copy of that package and checking the signature and
then re-installing it. But if you system has a rootkit installed (ie has
been hacked) re-installing entirely is the usual advice. I would wait
for better evidence that you've been hacked than this to start that
cycle. Hard links or filesystem boundaries are more likely culprits.
