Default Possible culprit for abnormally high upload usage


Further my last post, I notice from the 'top' command that I notice
that a process command call 'named' has been running when upload
BW is being taken once the process stopped the BW when back down to
normal. Under the User column (and the command column) the process is also label 'named'.

Now this process seem to start and stop on its own accord for periods of 10-15mins max then 2-3 pause then starts itself again.

Have my servers been hacked?

can I kill this process? if so how?
