doing /sbin/route I get a strange destination that is not part of my 
provider network but IANA

destination     gateway         genmask flags   use iface
192.x.x.0       *        U       0 eth0          (my 
LAN)     *          U       0 
eth0          (this one is IANA)
default         myLANgateway         UG      0 eth0

I never entered an IANA address. Is it possible for some hacker to modify 
that table?
Another thing I found strange yesterday was that /etc/hosts and 
/etc/resolv.conf were listed using more or vi reversed:
1 domain ...
2 search ...
3 nameserver ....

was listed as:
3 nameserver ....
2 search ....
How can the file be inversed?

my hosts lists :       localhost
192.x.x.1       mygateway
192.x.x.x       the troubled machine    www.mysite.com

my /etc/resolv.conf lists:
domain mysite.com
search mysite.com
nameserver 192.x.x.x (mygateway)
nameserver 209.x.x.x (my provider dns)
nameserver x.x.x.x (m provider other dns)
